"Guzzle, guzzle, drip and drool, who is drinking all my fuel?"

When Hansel and Diesel set out to search for fuel in their junkyard, they leave a path of nuts and bolts behind to show their way home. But when snow falls and they get lost, brother and sister truck have to fight the Wicked Winch all by themselves -- until their parents find the trail in the melting snow. David Gordon's twist on the traditional Brothers Grimm tale shows the importance of family and caring for those you love.
