Film synopsis[edit]

A woman called Mandy (Eleniak) runs away from her home. She meets Rick (McNamara) at a bus station who takes her with him to a rendezvouz with a pair of bank robbers. After listening to their plan, Mandy agrees to drive the getaway car for $5,000, when they convince her everything will go smoothly. However, the robbery goes awry resulting in several bank employees killed, and Mandy flees with Rick and $75,000. As a result, she is chased by the police and the other two robbers. During their escape, Mandy and Rick buy a red Cadillac convertible. Ultimately, she decides she wants to give the money back, but Rick disagrees.


The film was shot in locations in Bakersfield and Los Angeles, California, and Corpus Christi, Texas.
