Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Once-hot singing star Cyndi Lauper heads the cast of the Florida-based thriller Off and Running. Lauper plays a minor TV actress, Cyd Morse, who works nights as an underwater dancer at a posh Miami Beach hotel. While pitching woo with her boyfriend (José Pérez), Cyd is startled by the arrival of two hoods, who murder her man and prepare to do same to her. With a vital piece of evidence in her hot little hand, our heroine bolts her hotel room and runs off into the night. She enlists the reluctant aid of golfer Jack Cornett (David Keith), who tries to keep her from getting "iced" before she can reach the authorities. And guess what, kids? Cyd and Jack fall in love.
