Sailor and Lula are two lovers struggling to remain together even when fate seems intent on keeping them apart. In this case, fate is Lula’s mother, Marietta Fortune; a desperate woman who hates Sailor and will do anything to keep him away from her daughter. After Sailor is released from prison for murdering a man in self-defence, he and Lula embark on a sex-filled, rocking road trip, aware all the time that they are being hunted by Marietta’s cronies.
