Bebe (Molly Ringwald, "The Stand," "The Breakfast Club," "Pretty in Pink") and Alex (Donal Logue, "Blade," "Ghost Rider") are a couple on the run. After a drug deal turns deadly, the pair head off to Baja, Mexico, where they hide out in a trailer on the Sea of Cortez, awaiting forged passports which will allow their passage to Venezuela.
Enter John Stone (Corbin Bernsen, "L.A. Law," "Major League"), Bebe’s shady father who asks Michael Hart (Michael Nickles, "Wayne's World 2"), her estranged husband, to track them down and return Bebe. Michael is at first reticent to take the job, but his strong feelings for Bebe lead him to accept.
Once he's reached the desolate Mexican border town, Michael finds it a simple matter to locate Bebe and Alex. So, however, does Tom Burns (Lance Henriksen, "The Quick and the Dead," "Aliens"), a hit man with marital problems and literary pretensions.
As Burns prepares to kill Alex, Michael finds himself with less than twenty-four hours to convince Bebe to return home. The stakes are raised when the paranoid Alex suspects that Alex is the hit man...
