As with most anthropological studies, Sunlight and Babies shows that although cultures vary greatly, none is exempt from the crucial truth that we are all human. By observing their differences we witness this universal similarity. As far as trucking cultures is concerned, it has just as many stereotypes as any other culture. Unfortunately, these modern cowboys, as they are called, carry a lot of stigmas and are considered to be very far removed from the standard middle-class social tier. In truth, they couldn’t be more connected to the material-crazed American middle-class demographic. A large percentage of all the goods that fill the average American home have been touched in some way by the trucking industry. This documentary ventures into the nightlife of truck stop culture, as told through the voices of several anonymous truckers via CB radio interviews. By opening up the perspective of this frequently ignored but more often reviled subculture, we see that our similarities are, indeed, greater than our differences.
