The phrase â€˜Catching Outâ€™ describes the act of hopping a freight train. In the documentary film â€œCatching Out,â€ 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, â€œCatching Outâ€ follows these trainhoppers as they navigate between the constraints of society and the freedom of the road.
