Based on the true events depicted in a 1997 film documentary, “Hands on a Hardbody” takes place at a Nissan dealership in Longview, Texas, where 10 contestants try to outlast each other to win a brand new red truck by keeping at least one hand on it as long as they can. Every character needs the truck to help change their lives for the better, to win their American dream, and we watch them struggle through the heat and exhaustion with humor, ambition, and hope.
