Storyline

Jim is a convicted marijuana dealer, who is being pressured by the system to turn State's Evidence. He is accidentally freed from custody by a car crash, is shot & on the run. Kathy is running as well. Her severe learning disability is leaving her discouraged, constantly being under pressure because of inability to learn to read. The unlikely pair meet up. Cathy feels a sympathy for him, but Jim's bad attitude seems to spell doom for her hopes to befriend him. But Jim is cornered by inevitability of his recapture and takes Cathy up on her offer to guide him thru the wilderness of the high country, a place she feels more at home, due to her father's tutelage. The roles are now reversed. Jim, the independent self-centered city boy is now at the mercy of the wilderness and is forced to trust Cathy to keep him safe. Meanwhile, Cathy is putting to use all that she has learned in a real-life test of survival. Cathy finds her confidence & courage, and thru her innocent view of life & ... Written by Tom Hawk
