Storyline

Ray Bennett, a lonely video-store owner in the middle of nowhere decides to take some days off his work to think about his future. On the road, he comes across Harley, a very attractive, mysterious woman and ex-prisoner. Having been lonely for some time, he seems charmed and willing to spend some time with her, while she needs a man to help her finish a pretty well-paying job, left in the middle when she was busted for drug money distribution. Intentions differ, plans change and "trust" is a dangerous word as they make their way into the local cartel boss's business, with $2 million and maybe a new life as a compass. Written by Aristoteles "IronBruce" Kostoulas

REALLY LIKED IT,DEFINITELY WORTH WATCHING
25 June 2003 | by spanky6666See all my reviews

This really is a nice little movie,definitely worth watching!

The entire movie plays in a desert environment,really an alien looking place to one who lives in Belgium,like me... It's filled with strange people ,the cameraman did an outstanding job of shooting atmospheric images and the music too adds a lot to the atmosphere... See the other reviews to learn more about the content of this movie.

It last only for about 87 minutes but is definitely a time well spend!
