Overview

An alcoholic, part-time Santa Claus who runs a small Death Valley café chases his daughter to California she runs off with a rebellious punk rocker in this semi-surreal, anything goes road film featuring performances by legendary punk acts Flipper and The Mutants. Ed Nyland and his daughter (Carolyn Zaremba) eke out a meager existence in the desert thanks to Ed's out of the way café and some part time work as a department store Santa. Now Ed's daughter has set her sights on San Francisco, but daddy's little girl is going to have to run fast and far if she truly hopes to escape. As Ed sets out in hot pursuit of his runaway princess and her punk rock Romeo, he encounters a series of eccentric characters including a power-mad politician (Lowell Darling) determined to turn the Unites States into one enormous National Park, an ex-convict donning a space alien mask (Dick Richardson), and various politicians and priests who are passionately pushing for a limited nuclear war. Along the way, punk rock legends Flipper and The Mutants perform, and Willie Boy Walker hits the sidewalks to conduct some man-on-the-street interviews.
