(From the publisher):
Bob, a vicious killer, cheats the electric chair by shooting his way out of the penitentiary, forcing two reluctant convicts to come along. Desparately dodging the cops, Ned and Jim reach a river that runs along the Canadian border. The bridge across it becomes their only hope of reaching safety, but a checkpoint guards the crossing. Mamet builds the tension to the breaking point with a series of sizzling surprises as time and again the escaped jailbirds fail by a hairsbreadth to slip past the guards.
Disguised as priests, Ned and Jim are mistaken for two famous theologians attending the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows at a local monastary. The wickedly funny Mamet takes his two heroes down a dizzying course of serpentine adventures, demonstrating once again his peerless mastery of the art of cinematic suspense.
