Like Terence Malick's highly acclaimed 1973 film, 'Badlands', this lovers-on-the-run story is based on the notorious 1958 Starkweather and Fugate case in which nineteen year-old Charles Starkweather killed his girlfriend Caril Ann Fugate's parents before the two of them took off on a killing spree over eight days that left eleven people dead in Nebraska. Whether or not Caril Ann was Starkweather's willing accomplice or his kidnapped victim is one of the issues raised in this film.
