A mysterious woman calling herself Ms Smith, checks into a seedy motel in an out-of-the-way little town. Not only is she stunningly lovely but she also drives a big black convertible that breathes power and speed. JT, the just-out-of-high-school son of the motel's owner, becomes obsessed with the car and in an attempt to liven up his dull life and to impress Tanya, a motel guest who flirts with him, JT along with his pal James and Tanya steel the car for a joyride. For a moment their lives ignite into thrills, danger and intrigue - until they find a corpse in the boot of the car. JT seizes the moment, and figures that 'No one in their right mind would report a car stolen with a dead body in the boot' and if they can get rid of the body - he can keep the car. They sink the body a lake but it's soon discovered. The Police find the evidence confusing; it looks like two people did the crime, one an expert killer, the other - an idiot. JT will do anything to keep the car. Ms Smith will kill to get it back.
