Synopsis: (A comedy/love story/road movie)

WALTER CHARLTON loses his wife, he loses his modest Burbank home, and then his Prius is repossessed. Walter is doomed, until the cat-loving KRANKOV SISTERS who run the TRIPLE A repo company offer salvation. They need a car repo-ed in Arkansas and returned to Burbank. It is no ordinary car, but an immaculate 1960 Cadillac Biarritz: Promise Red with white leather interior -- one of the great American convertibles.

They do not mention it belongs to their brother AXEL P. KRANKOV, an evil, gun-loving Elmer Fudd. Walter takes the Cadillac and is chased by Axel in a weaponry-loaded SUV.

Leaving a seedy Arkansas motel for home, Walter discovers a young woman hiding in the Cadillac's trunk. Free spirit REBECCA BARNBY is escaping from sex-obsessed biker JEROME SCRAGGS after she superglued his hand to his crotch.

Hunted by Axel and Jerome, Walter and Rebecca grow close as they race across Oklahoma -- where they join the First Annual Spinach and Sarsaparilla Parade; New Mexico -- where hard-drinking Axel and Jerome are trapped in a marathon AA convention; and then deep into Arizona. The chase ends John Ford style in Monument Valley when Walter turns to face and outwit his enemies.

Now free, Walter and Rebecca go their separate ways; she to change her life, and Walter to fulfill his promise of returning the Cadillac to Burbank, and then on to pursue his own dreams. Or do they?
