This rollicking highway adventure in the tradition of Convoy and White Line Fever joins the energetic trio of Peter Fonda (Wanda Nevada, Easy Rider), Jerry Reed (Gator, Smokey and the Bandit) and Helen Shaver (The Park Is Mine, Desert Hearts) as three angry independents who are set to take on the most vicious gang of hijackers to ever run the highways. Fonda plays Rane, a free-spirited professional motorcyclist on a visit to his ex-partner, Duke (Reed). When Rane finds out that Duke is the gang’s next target, he becomes caught up in the trucker’s fight—and swept up by the sexy Pickup (Shaver), the most “unique” semi-driver he’s ever met. The action builds as Rane, Duke and Pickup take on the hijack gang in a series of action-packed, stunt-filled, hair-raising escapades, featuring a stunt chase sequence never before attempted on film. Directed by Peter Carter (Rituals, Klondike Fever) and featuring an early turn by Michael Ironside (Scanners).
