Based on a true story, this crime drama chronicles the moral downfall of a young middle-class couple living in a Chicago suburb. Chris Anderson is an honest cop whose his sexy wife Pam works in a high-tech factory. Chris tends to be as uptight as he is honest, while Pam is a free-spirited, self-destructive biker chick who may be even crazier than she seems. She doesn't cook, smokes dope, goes on spending sprees and loves to ride around upon her big bike. She is never responsible, but for some reason, Chris loves her. Unfortunately, she has put them deeply in debt. Things get worse when Chris loses his job and must work as a security guard, a position that doesn't pay nearly enough. To get money for their debts, Chris begins a secret spree of bank robberies. At first Pam doesn't suspect a thing, but when she finds out, she insists on getting involved, something that nearly ruins his well-oiled operation. Eventually it is his weakness for her that causes the story's tragic ending. … More
