Wild Boys Of The Road synopsis

Tommy Gordon (Edwin Philips) and Eddie Smith (Frankie Darro) go looking for jobs as their families suffer during the Great Depression. Bound for the city, the teens share a rail car with Sally (Dorothy Coonan), a youth in similar straits, and they become friends, deciding to stay together when they reach Chicago. But jobs and housing elude the trio, as they and their peers fall prey to injury, hunger and crime. Their naivete lands them in trouble, which might just be their big break.
