A teenager (Crawford) with a form of autism that causes fits of uncontrollable rage is being transported by a CID officer (Keith) and a psychiatric nurse (Malone) from California to a military clinic in Kentucky. Along the way, they discover they're being followed by a man and woman. The boy is a handful, and various things happen along the way that cause the trio to have to stop more often than planned. At one stop, the kid disappears as does the mysterious couple, leaving behind a badly beaten girl . Plus the officer and nurse run afoul of the law. The climax is a bit of a surprise, although it is wrapped up a bit too neatly. The cast is outstanding, and includes veteran character actor Anthony Caruso as a sympathetic law officer. Nicely paced, well photographed. Structured like a theatrical release.
