When her plush and comfy life suddenly and unexpectedly falls apart, Brooke and her dog Cloud set out to defy the odds. She puts on a knapsack and starts walking. If this is a man's world as they say, living on the streets is no place for a young woman. She is able to navigate her way through challenges and obstacles, getting odd jobs along the way, and hopping freight trains as a main mode of transport. Then one day she wakes in the redwood forest, looks around the make shift camp built upon mounds of dirty kid trash and hidden back into the trees, and realizes she has become a hobo - and will ultimately come to know exactly what it means to survive.
