Movie Info

Garret Williams made his directorial debut with this tale of an urban black couple trapped in a desert town of rednecks. Byron (Terrence Howard) and Nina (Nicole Ari Parker) are driving a BMW from Chicago to L.A. when they experience a back-road breakdown. Teen Mooney (Brendan Sexton III) tows them to a white-trailer-trash town where they're charged $500 for repairs. When the BMW dies again, they stay overnight in a motel, and the situation soon gets grim. The characters in this low-budgeter were first introduced in a 1996 short. Spark was shown at 1998 film festivals (Sundance, Berlin).

  • Shot on the cheap in what appears to be an abandoned ghost town, it looks like the only thing they bothered to budget for was cuss words.

    What did Byron expect with his bad attitude & hanging out with a nutjob?

    This movie made me so angry I just had to keep watching. First of all I wanted to smack Terrence Howard's character upside his head. Serious anger management issues and possessiveness going on here. Why was Nicole Parker even with him? None of it made sense and the actions of the characters were ridiculous. Not recommended!
