Alex Cox's 1980s cult classic in which a luckless man forced to take a job as a car repossession worker finds that it transforms his life. Otto (Emilio Estevez) is an L.A. punk rocker with an attitude - qualities which cost him dearly when he is fired from his job at a supermarket after a fight with a co-worker. Then his girlfriend dumps him. Wandering the streets in despair, Otto meets Bud (Harry Dean Stanton), a repo man who attempts to educate Otto on the value of his occupation. Otto is unconvinced, but with few other options, he takes Bud's advice and becomes a car repossession worker. Otto suddenly finds himself living a fast-paced life involving hot-wiring, car chases and physical threats from irate car owners. Ultimately, he becomes entangled in the chase for a '64 Chevy driven by a mad scientist (Fox Harris) said to contain a lethal cargo.
