An off-center comedy composed mostly of actors from the popular troupe the Actor's Gang in California, this picture follows Joe (Mackenzie Astin), a young man who is told some unusual and unsettling news. His doctor has informed him that he has a virus spreading in his body and has only a few weeks left to live. After being prescribed painkiller lollipops, Joe decides to leave his desolate Texas existence to go on a quest to search for his grade-school sweetheart, Joyce (Jennifer Morrison. On the road, Joe encounters a series of eccentric people, including religious-cult runaway Seth (John Ales); a Gulf War vet/ventriloquist (Kyle Gass) whose wooden dummy is penning a novel; Fanny (Rachel Wilson), who owns a racy karaoke strip club and roller disco; and Durango (Sam Vlahos), a garbage entrepreneur who shoots farm animals for fun. Joe races through a bizarre, semi-futuristic landscape in attempt to find his beloved before he runs out of time.
