Lennie Ashland has graduated from Harvard. His father's sudden death, however, has shattered his dream life of entitlement and privilege. Aimless, Lennie buys a beat up Delta 88 sedan and takes his two best friends on a road trip to 'discover America.' At a nondescript gas station in the hinterlands, a teenaged carjacker and a desperate runaway girl derail Lennie's grand plan, and take him and his friends for the ride of their lives. Now with the Feds, local police, and thugs in hot pursuit, these 'Young Turks' meet the blunt edge of a racial underclass reality in a way they could never have imagined.
