U-Turn


Our hero is driving through the Arizona desert to pay off a gambling debt in Las Vegas when his car breaks down and he is forced to stop in a rundown desert town. He's agitated because the gangsters to whom he owes the money have already disfigured his hand and are threatening more violence if they are not paid on time. In the seemingly quiet town, Bobby unexpectedly loses his money and becomes enmeshed in manipulation, murder and violence as his departure is repeatedly delayed... Love triangles abound, as does the violence.
