Scene from this movie Bobby Cooper is speeding along an Arizona interstate in his prized Mustang convertible. Heís carrying a stash of money he owes to some Russian gangsters in Las Vegas. Thatís when his ride blows a radiator hose. He's forced to go to a desolate repair shop in Superior, Ariz., which turns out to be the Tumbleweed Town from Hell.

More significant for Bobby, is Grace, a sultry temptress who seems interested in a passionate diversion. But when Bobby sweet-talks his way into her bedroom, he meets the iron fist of Jake McKenna, who canít stand it when his wife gets up to her teasing games. -- Desson Howe
