Italian Luca (Antonio Cupo) leaves Las Vegas for the Death Valley with his sister Martina (Bianca Guaccero). At the same time, Cherie (Caprice Bourret), striptease dancer and model, escapes from her rich boss, Zach (Casper Van Dien), to get back with her pimp boyfriend Mickey. On the highway, the two Italian give a passage to two hitchhikers, Sean and Emilio. They stop to rest in a motel (in which Cherie hides); but the next morning, Luca find out that Martina has been kidnapped by Jamie and Sean. Actually, the two hitchhikers are escaping from Las Vegas where they robbed a bank; they want Luca, alone, to catches up them to Los Angeles with the money in a rented car with a cell. Then, they will free Martina. But Cherie gets in the car when private Joe Gardner hired by Zach, find her. Fortunately, Luca will find both of them (Caprice, her lover, the private, Martina and the bank robbers) in LA motel where they are rooming. Now, everybody is after the money.
Filmed in part in Canada, this second movie from Segatori is pursuing the exploration of the desert (very present in Terra bruciata a western genre film), here in opposition to the structured city with false buildings and hot girls of L.A. As he did it many years ago with his short film about Cappadocia, Segatori continues his visitation of ruined landscapes but instead of philosophical comments, action for lost causes plots take place.
