  • Jeff Cameron, a young doctor at the beginning of his career, links his destiny to that of a patient he saves from suicide. He dumps the secure, rather plain nurse Julie, for the passionate but perplexing Margo. Confused, caught up in Margo's deceptions, Jeff loses his sense of reality and finds himself fleeing with her for the Mexican border. Together they race desparately through a post-WWII noir-American landscape peopled with grostesque small-town types eager to exploit their every turn."Once we cross the border, it'll be alright" says Margo...
