When their only family car is stolen, Ty and his kid brother Joel are aghast when Pa buys a horse-n-buggy instead of another car. But Pa has decided to accept the reality of a world where fuel is getting scarce. Ty and Joel must adapt to a life reminiscent of the 19th century while listening to their grandfather relive the good old days of the 21st, and while evading a gang that won’t leave them alone.
Then, Joel decides to join the gang and rips a hole right out of Ty’s heart. “Once Upon a Gas Tank” is a short tale about two brothers in a world where progress is stuck in reverse.
