Synopsis

A crime-ridden, road picture which follows the random meeting of two off-beat characters: Denis Brabant is a sleazy French actor, ditched by his mistress in the middle of nowhere when he tells her his wife is pregnant; and Zac Cross, more or less Denis' opposite, is a handsome, naive all-American guy trying to reconcile over the phone with his former sweetheart Beth.

Along the way the two are greeted by an a bizzare cast of characters and outlandish incidents, resulting in the duo smuggling an illegal alien across the border.
