Alan Arkin's character, Cooper, drives a yellow Peterbilt down America's highways and byways, tells us he's an "engine man," tries to hustle a load, finds humor where he can. Cooper takes revenge on the police, reminiscent of the Kit Carruther's character in Malick's directorial debut, Badlands (1973), when he throws a set of the boss's keys into a barrel of oil after being told he's fired.
The movie was never theatrically released.
