Frank Guidry is a go-to guy for the New Or­leans Mob so when he’s told to drop a get­away car in Dal­las, he doesn’t think twice. But when pres­i­dent John F. Kennedy is as­sas­si­nated, the Mob starts clean­ing house. Frank knows too much; it’s time for him to dis­ap­pear. Run­ning west to Ve­gas on Route 66, he meets Char­lotte, stranded with her two daugh­ters in New Mex­ico. Hop­ing to con­fuse the hit man on his trail – who’s hunt­ing a man trav­el­ling alone, not a fam­ily – Frank of­fers her a lift. The in­ex­orable pace of the chase and the poignancy of two fugi­tives both hop­ing for a sec­ond chance make this sev­eral cuts above your stan­dard crime thriller.
