Overview

Synopsis

The phrase ‘Catching Out’ describes the act of hopping a freight train. In the documentary film “Catching Out,” several contemporary hobos dissent against mainstream American consumer culture by traveling for free on freight trains. The film features a seasoned eco-activist named Lee, a young nomad named Jessica, and a tramp couple known as Switch and Baby Girl. In three interwoven stories, “Catching Out” follows these trainhoppers as they navigate between the constraints of society and the freedom of the road.
