If she fails, Yuko's parents will die back in Japan. Yuko meets Michael, a young man trying to get his life back together after a brief stint in jail. Yuko likes Michael and Michael falls for Yuko but when she asks him to do this most unpleasant task, Michael erupts saying no. Yuko then steals Michael's car and all hell breaks loose in Los Angeles.
