Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Wild Boys of the Road

In the 1930's depression, teenage boys and girls leave home to make their own way in the world and to take the burden off their parents. Travelling by train & foot, they rarely find any work and starve most of the way, and one character loses a leg in the process. Eventually arrested, the three main characters are sent to court, where a sympathetic judge sends them back unpunished, giving them recommendations for jobs and a more hopeful future.
