C&W singer/songwriter Skeets Hollaran and best friend, piano player, Jesse Suarez, are both underachieving Austin, Texas, musicians. Skeets finds himself homeless when his soul mate, Gena Koster, kicks him out for philandering. Jesse’s landlord evicts him and threatens criminal action for his hot rent checks. They flee, on their Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, into the Mexican dessert. They hope for a life-changing, pivotal spiritual journey of redemption: sin seared from their souls by the desert sun, atonement, and absolution of Skeets by Gena.
Instead, a perilous and riotous romp follows from the Mexican border to the small town of Tolencita where the despot El Jefe jails them and threatens their lives. Gina travels to Tolencita and concocts the kookiest jailbreak imaginable along with some mariachis and Josefina, the Mexican Burro.
As you ride along with Skeets and Jesse on this Don Quixote-esque adventure, you find (in spite of the playful tone and often thigh-slapping humor) mankind’s foibles arrayed, illegal immigration illuminated, greed uprooted and foiled, and political oppression confronted and vanquished – all without a single gunshot.
Wonderful Josefina, the Mexican burro, also shows us if we are steadfast in our faith and stay the course, we can achieve our dreams, even though we might get diddled along the way.
