While traveling from Green Lawn, California, to meet his wife and son in Red Ridge, Nevada, the driver Jeremy Stanton gets lost in a secondary road through the desert following an old edition of the Road-Aid Travel Guide maps. He calls the Road-Aid operator Judy, who tries to give directions to her client. Meanwhile, the police are chasing the criminals that have committed a bank heist in California. When Jeremy's Mercedes Benz runs out of gas, he finds an isolated gas station in the middle of nowhere that accepts cash-only. When Jeremy opens the truck of his car, he brings out a bag full of money, disclosing the reason for his road-trip. Written by
