With the clock ticking, the story jumps off in the border town of Tijuana, Mexico. Marley, a smooth cat who labels himself an expeditor must survive a gauntlet of hitters and freaks to deliver his client-one Lina Guzmá n-alive to their destination. She's a high maintenance drug queen who's made a deal with the top cop in California's state capitol, Sacramento. By all means of transportation and dodging devastation-and busting some heads themselves-the two make their way north while behind-the-scenes machinations go down. Battered but not out, our man completes his assignment only to find out all ain't what it seems-but then, he's not getting two million just to look good. And handling fools, no matter how they trip, comes with the territory.
