Sam sleeps in the car most of the time now. Motels are mainly for when he needs to mend himself with sleep or stitches or alcohol. They’re just so stupid; he’s sick of them. On the shoulder of the highway, people pass by every minute. In motel rooms, he’s all alone.
Jo, fresh out of high school, has left home and wound up on the road with John, trying to learn the ropes from someone who isn’t exactly sharing and caring. John, distant and impatient, isn’t really a partner, friend, or role model — which means that Jo’s gotta get all stupid and hot for him. Their stoic apprenticeship starts to unravel as Jo starts to run out of clothes and John can’t ignore her anymore.
