Synopsis
Frank and Jerry Lee Flannigan work odd jobs, drink hard, and drift from motel to motel. Their only escape is through Frank's fantastic stories and Jerry Lee's rich illustrations. Everything changes when Jerry Lee is involved in a hit-and-run accident, which forces the brothers across the state to the home of Frank's old flame, Annie. While the two seem safe from the law, Jerry Lee's insatiability and all-consuming guilt render their future increasingly uncertain.
