The rear wheel cylinders may be bad. They receive the fluid to put pressure on the rear drum brakes. It is an inexpensive part and something you can easily do yourself if you have mechanical knowledge, otherwise a shop will stick it to you for the replacement. Also check the actual brake lines for any leaks.
