A rough and tough macho truck driver decides to make his soft son more of a man by taking him hunting. They go on a holiday and go to a honky-tonk bar where the younger man falls in love with a burned out waitress.
They're stormin' on the taverns... thunderin' over the roads... and just plain having a good ol' time!

The original version of Texas Lightning was a serious drama called "The Boys", which producer Edward L. Montoro forced director Gary Graver to re-cut and shoot additional comedic footage for. The new version was released to the theaters as Texas Lightning, while the original cut of the boys remains officially unreleased to this day. An illegitimate video was released in Finland in the early 90's. There might also be other European bootleg editions. See more
