Two offbeat C&W musicians flee Austin, Texas, on their Harley-Davidson motorcycles after becoming homeless. One for philandering and the other for hot rent checks. They ride into the Mexican dessert, hoping for a life-changing, journey of redemption. A humorous and perilous romp follows from the Mexican border to the town of Tolencita where the despot El Jefe jails them and threatens death.
