Charles is a buttoned-up young executive with a secret life – he's given to little rebellious gestures like sneaking out on a lunch tab. Audrey, a hell-raiser with a Louise Brooks helmet of black hair, catches him in the act one day and senses a kindred spirit beneath the suit and tie. She lures him into her battered Ford, and thus begins a wild adventure on the road, filled with motel room sexcapades, car thefts, and more skipped checks.
