Josh “Hote” Hotle, twenty-one-year-old bass player, wants to get the hell out of Phoenix. It's 1990, one year before Seattle’s grunge music scene breaks nationwide, and Hote longs to escape to the rainy Northwest. His car is packed with all of his things, he is ready to go. One easy right turn onto the freeway and Hote's a free man. But a funny thing happens on the way out of town.
