Charlotte Emery (Susan Sarandon) was planning on leaving her husband. What she didn't plan on was getting caught up in a bungled bank robbery. With barely time to catch her breath, Charlotte finds her whole world turned upside down. Charlotte is on the run and at the mercy of wild kid Jake (Stephen Dorff), after a heist gone wrong. The unlikely pair have the cops on their heels and wondering if Charlotte really is Jake's hostage or more a willing victim. A younger man, an older woman, a gun, a car and the open road. They weren't looking for adventure - but it's too late to stop now.
