The nature of temptation. Banks is a hit man, the best, usually working for Latin American drug cartels. He picks up solitary women, uses them briefly for a job, then kills them. He's in the Southwest, headed toward Mexico, when he picks up Bennie, a woman leaving an abusive marriage, going to Paradise, Arizona. The film follows three tracks: Banks's slow recruitment of Bennie, the set-up for the hit at a swank resort in Mexico, and the FBI's close pursuit of Banks, whom they want alive in hopes he'll rat out his bosses. Bennie may not be who she seems, and there may be a chink in Banks's tough-guy armor. Guns, money, and a chance at Paradise... Written by

A frantic woman gets out, tosses her cookies, and starts to run. The driver turns out to be Mr. Sutherland. He wipes off his shoes, shoots the running woman, and buries her body. After having handcuff sex with a local waitress, Sutherland picks up down-on-her-luck diabetic Melora Walters (as Bennie Harper)...
Sporting a fresh cigar burn, and a handwritten "Paradise or Bust" sign, Ms. Walters is out of gas, money, and luck. Cross-cut characters Leslie Stefanson (as Donna Marbury) and Jamey Sheridan (as George Scanlon) reveal Sutherland is a high paid assassin; he specializes in picking up fly-by-night women as partners, and kills them when the hit is done. They are after Sutherland, who is on his way to assassinate a Mexican politician. This is an unassuming time passer, done in by a puzzling last shot.
