RIDING THE RAILS - 90 Minute Feature Film starring Jim Babchak and Jose Zuniga. Produced and Directed by Neil Hollander.

Riding the Rails is a voyage into the growing underworld of American society, where thousands of men and women live on the streets, eat in soup kitchens and travel as hobos on freight trains.

Sam Spencer has been squeezed out of the middle class. Wiped out by a stock market crash and harassed by his creditors, Sam falls through society's net and suddenly finds himself broke on the streets of New York. When a friend offers him a job in California, Sam heads west the only way he can afford, hopping trains. En route he meets Enrique, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, and Enrique's canine companion who together introduce Sam to hobo culture.

Riding the Rails is a graphic chronicle of their journey across the country, a journey of survival that takes them through the human wastelands of America.
