A truck-driver Brewster takes over his missing brother's delivery of a load of coffins to a funeral home. He picks up hitchhiking gay couple Cary and Vogel whose relationship is in trouble to help him stay awake.
So many of the child stars featured referenced their parents, and often not in a flattering light. Most of the parent/child relationships really suffered with the role reversal of having the child, the bread winner of the family. For some reason, I was curious to hear from some of the parents themselves. Evan Rachel Wood for example, referenced her parents often, placing responsibilities on them, yet not really sharing any specifics in much detail.
Henry Thomas and Wil Wheaton both spoke of strained relationships with their parents. Mara Wilson and Todd Bridges spoke more positively of their relationships with their parents, but I felt like with each of these actors, a story was started, but never really finished. I get that many child stars feel they're living out dreams that weren't necessarily their own, but I wished Winters would have gone deeper in one of the stories, maybe especially that of would be child actor Marc Price.Indictment: The McMartin Trial (1990)
