A man hitchhiking to nowhere tangles with a truck driver from hell. More
Lester is a drifter with no place to go and no way to get there -- until he hitches a ride with Archie, an overweight truck driver from hell. Right off the bat, Archie gets Lester thrown in jail for ordering (and eating) a large meal, then slipping out without paying. It's Archie's ex-wife who bails him out and gives him board and room for working on her secluded desert ranch. After a while Lester begins to find value in life by caring for Selena and her two horses. No longer does he live between moments of hunger and cold; he now has a purpose in life, even though love is a strange new road never before traveled. Then Archie returns. And when he does, he leaves murder and mayhem in his large wake.
