Storyline

Jacob and Sierra, two poor rural types, decide to solve their problems by kidnapping Maria, the governor's daughter. Things begin to go awry, however, when Maria's father witnesses the kidnapping. To make matters worse, he ends up in a coma after crashing his car while chasing the kidnappers, so he is unable to answer their demands. As the pair wait for the governor to wake up, their patience begins to wear thin and they begin to lose hope of their scheme ever succeeding. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
