One moment Pamela is a newly-wed with a loving husband and a comfortable home. The next, she's the prisoner of a killer who has lusted after her since high school.
Meanwhile, scaredy-cat Norman has had his car taken over by bad-boy Duke and hitch-hiker Boots. Together the lawless pair take him on a wild journey that looks like it's heading straight for the electric chair.
Then the glory bus comes along, with hope of salvation for all. But the people who climb aboard don't know their destination is the furnace heat of the Mojave Desert, where a special welcome awaits them. It can't be worse than what's gone before - can it?
