Although based on a story about a young, unintentional killer by John Steinbeck, Flight's main credits are its musical score and scenic views of southern California's Big Sur. The year is 1900 or so, and Pepo (Efraín Ramírez) lives in crushing poverty, like many other Mexican-Americans in and around Monterey. But Pepo has the further misfortune of fighting it out with a drunk in a bar, getting injured in the process, and killing his woozy adversary. The young Hispanic takes off for the hill country outside the city with the law and an ill-defined lynch mob in hot pursuit.
