Greg Smith directed and stars in this road movie that begins off the coast of Baja when the sailing trip of Ray Goodley (Smith) suddenly becomes landlocked: Looking for his lost dog in El Rosario, Ray sucks on a six-pack, awakens in a Mexican jail, and is given a odd sentencing requiring him to transport a cargo from LA to El Rosario. When he makes it to LA, he learns that the "cargo," presented to him by nutty Senor Grem (Scott Glenn), is an old ambulance he has to drive back to Baja. Fast-talking actress wannabe Crystal Shaw (Rio Glenn) hitches a ride, and the two take an interest in each other as they head south of the border. The screenplay is by Dakota Glenn, daughter of Scott Glenn and the sister of Rio Glenn. Shown at the 1998 Palm Springs Film Festival. The soundtrack features David Abir's score and both American and Mexican songs. Produced by Dakota Glenn and Smith.
