In Seventies America, Bob (Matt Dillon) and his wife Dianne (Kelly Lynch) travel from state to state, ripping off pharmacies to fuel their drug addiction. Gaining a certain amount of notoriety and respect for his streetwise bravado, Bob is forced to reassess his life when gang member Nadine (Heather Graham) dies of an overdose. He attempts to kick the habit and go legit but is hindered by his own lack of willpower and his wife's reluctance to give up life in the fast lane. Directed by Gus van Sant, it also features an appearance by author William Burroughs as a junkie priest.
