Pluto, Ray and Fantasia steal money and a large quantity of drugs from a L.A. dealer. Eight witnesses are coldly murdered by Pluto and Ray. The trio must drive through the States to Houston where they want to sell their merchandise and Fantasia insists on going to Star City, Arkansas to say hello to her little boy. As the police knows now who they are, tensions begin to rise. Meanwhile, two L.A. cops wait for them in Star City in the company of Chief Dale Dixon, the police Chief of the small town, who wants to be part of the show when the criminals arrive.

A very good surprise. Smart and violent.
