Storyline

Jack is caught with the wife of his employer, a Vegas thug. The thug sends goons after Jack, who convinces his best friend, Pilot, to flee with him. Pilot insists that they head for Seattle, but doesn't tell Jack why. The goons learn from Pilot's drug source where the youths are headed, and they follow, hell bent on breaking Jack's feet. On the road, Jack and Pilot give a ride to Cassie, a distressed young woman. She and Jack hit it off. They pick up an aging stoner headed to Seattle for Kurt Cobain's memorial, and they help a circus sideshow family. Why is Pilot so set on Seattle, will the goons catch Jack, and is there any way the friends' competing needs can be resolved? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

I thought this film was very good it had such a good mixture of adventure,love,sadness and humour i think it had something for everyone in there. Jake Gyllenhaal and Jared Leto work so well together their both very good actors and played their parts very well this was definitly one of Jake Gyllenhaal's good roles.
