Synopsis

The story of a trio of fugitives--two bank robbers and the woman they both love. When the suave, irresistible Joe and his hypochondriac partner, Terry escape from prison, they cut a swathe from Oregon through California, robbing banks in order to finance their scheme for a new--and somewhat legitimate life--south of the border. In their wake, they leave a trail of chaos, disguises, wrecked automobiles--and an adoring public--while fleeing from the law. Their operation is running smoothly until they have an unexpected run-in with Kate, a housewife sick of her disappointing life, who is drawn to the thieves as a way to escape. Together Joe and Terry are the most successful bank robbers in U.S. history. To Kate, they also combine to make the perfect man. Things get more complicated when the police and media assume that Kate is their hostage and organize a massive manhunt to save her from the clutches of Joe and Terry.
