This Road Movie is about two very contrary friends, Chris and Peter, on their way to South Dakota to pick up a motorcycle that Chris just inherited. They hope for a Harley but get a Vespa.
Chris, being naturally optimistic talks Peter, who has just been dumped by his girlfriend, into driving this Italian mean machine back home to L.A. Romantic notions of America clash with lost ideals and lost people on this wacky trip. After a good deal of fighting, laughing and crying at least one of our two heroes ultimately finds himself.
