Storyline

Rachel, a part-time call girl, consumed with fairy tales, is taken off the streets of Las Vegas by Navy, a high-class gigolo in search of a new way of life in Montana. Along the way, the couple is sidetracked when they decide to stop at the home Rachel ran away from six years ago. Navy nearly falls for Rachel's gorgeous and "virginal" step-sister, Lilli. Heartbroken, Rachel runs away just as Navy realizes she is the one for him. He dramatically rescues her from psychotic drifters. Written by Amanda Lowe <daro@meditnet.com>

Love, tragedy, then love.
26 February 1999 | by (Suffern, New York) – See all my reviews

A great performance by Jasmine Bleeth and Richard Grieco. Two lost souls who find each other in a big city, decide to seek out their fate together as they drive across the country. "Navy" (Richard Grieco) was to seek his independence and new life while "Rachel" (Yasmine Bleeth) hopelessly discovers the shelter her knight in shining armor can provide her. Their acting is well supported and complemented by a few others on the screen. Newcomer to the screen, James Ecklund ("Cole") exhihits a powerful twist in the romance and destiny of Navy and Rachel when he takes advantage of her gullibility. Ecklund defines how "looks can be deceiving" in this drama. He provides an outstanding performance on his screen debut.
