Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this touching drama, an abandoned young girl and a world-weary, embittered ex-prizefighter team up and hitchhike to California. There, he hopes to find the drug addicted deadbeat who has absconded with his life savings. As the two make the arduous journey, the boxer cannot help but find his bleak outlook on life lightened by his optimistic young companion who amuses herself by gazing at the world through the gaily colored wrappers of the suckers she always carries.
