Clay, a washed-up professional wrestler, kidnaps his estranged wife Evalana and their child, and heads for the border in his Galaxy 500. He hopes to re-invent himself in Mexico as a champion wrestler, and thereby save his failing family from certain doom. An unexpected rest stop in the middle of the desert throws a monkey wrench in his plans, when Evalana finds herself with an opportunity to escape -- but not before Clay articulates his love for her and their child one last time, revealing the full beauty and ferocity of his soul unlike ever before. Will she go, or stay? Or will something more mysterious happen in the darkest heart and hour of this magical vision of the post-American Dream?
