The Popes are a family who haven't been able to use their real identity for years. In the late sixties, the parents set a weapons lab afire in an effort to hinder the government's Vietnam war campaign. Ever since then, the Popes have been on the run with the authorities never far behind. Today, their eldest son wants a life of his own although he is aware that would mean that his parents would either get caught or he will never see them again. Written by

What are you doing here if you think so highly of it?
Well, they wouldn't let me take auto mechanics, and I didn't have time to take the issue to the Supreme Court.
