For Johnny (C. Thomas Howell) and Becky (Teri Ann Linn), life at the Cactus Blossom is pretty dull. He's the cook and she's the waitress at a lonely desert diner in the middle of nowhere. So when a Las Vegas gangster named Freethrow (Marcus Chong) dies at one of the tables with a sack of diamonds, there's only one thing to do...take the loot and run. But its not long before every gangster in town is hot on their tail: the short tempered Mr. DePalma (Michael Russo) and his goons, the cold hearted and seemingly invincible Felix (Leon) and his thugs. Soon Johnny and Becky are just running for their lives, discovering that some things are more important than money, and the price of greed is Pure Danger.
