Overview

Set in 1969, Mustang To Paducah follows the zany travails of Nestor "Cruiser" Cruz and Maxwell "Peanut" O'Connor, two aimless Miami hippies who are returning a car for a tourist from Kentucky. Their spur-of-the-moment road trip lands the flaky duo at the scene of a multiple murder. Before long, the pair are on the lam as the prime suspects with an unhinged FBI agent and a mob contract killer on their trail.

Nestled slyly into this madcap road trip is the cultural awakening of two young Miami refugees, one from Cuba, the other from Georgia. Being a hippie is more a fashion statement than a lifestyle for Cruiser and Peanut, the offspring of working-class parents who, like most migrants, came to Miami seeking a better life. After venturing outside their inner-city world for the first time, the pair discover a form of hippie heresy: The flower child ethos of dropping out and going back to the land feels less like liberation and more like a step back to the hardships their parents fled in Havana and Waycross.
