Dekotora is the Japanese culture of semi truck customizing, and this documentary lets you take a ride with one owner who explains why he does it. The guy has over a million miles on his truck and over $40,000 invested into its lights and polished metal.
Trucking is a lonely line of work full of long, monotonous stretches of driving punctuated by fast food, cheap motels, and short stints of heavy labor. To relieve the loneliness and boredom, some truckers travel with a co-driver, others spend their time chattering away on the CB to anyone who will listen. Smart truckers though, smart truckers get a dog.
