After accidentally killing her abusive husband Jack, forty year old hospice nurse Amelia Philips heads on the run in the family RV, with Jack's body in the back and an unwanted passenger at the wheel: sardonic high school English teacher and self-defined failed novelist Darryl Tripp, 27, who on the way to dump his novel in a landfill, takes refuge from a windstorm in what he mistakes for an empty RV. As Amelia and Darryl cross the state together, into the evening of Darryl's engagement party - which he misses - romance blossoms as Jack decomposes.
