Summary

Frank, a frustrated singer-turned-music professor finds himself entangled in a love affair with Shelley, a highly-educated, unhappily married woman. Jonesing to quit his teaching gig, Frank jumps at the chance to implement his new girlfriend's scheme to steal the skimmed-cash treasure from her marijuana business tycoon husband.

Feeling they need a third, she introduces him to Ramon, her go-to bartender, armed with a nomadic upbringing and a gun from behind the register, who likewise is all in. But, Shelley's well-thought-out heist gets more complicated when the two men find themselves impossibly drawn to one another.

Hiding out in Palm Springs—99 miles from LA—Frank and Ramon team up in more ways than one, breaking promises not to reunite before Shelley can escape the watchful eye of her husband's colleagues after the brutal crime succeeds.

With a trunk full of money and the aphrodisiac of lawlessness urging them on, was lust morphing toward love? Or, was there a deeper plan in place between these three desperate partners, each of them scratching at their last chance for freedom from a failing American dream?
