A runaway meets up with a young man in the bus station who leads her to a rendezvous with two others who are planning a bank robbery. She is convinced to drive the getaway car for $5,000 and assured that everything will go smoothly. Of course it doesn't and several bank employees get shot, as well as the two other robbers. The boy and girl flee with $75,000 which leave them being chased by the police and the other two robbers. After spending a considerable amount of the money, including buying a red Cadillac convertible, she decides she wants to give the money back which doesn't set well with her beau.
This is first really Erika's movie. She is the main star. It's almost fun to watch it, but from time to time the script is very naive and actors don't help much to improve the impression. Movie is rated R with BN (brief nudity), but there is nothing like that.
