It’s the mid-1980s, before gentrification and smart phones, and without much regard for women’s rights. Marti, a one-eyed woman with low self-esteem and a heart shaped eye patch, has a history of associating with men who bring trouble. When boyfriend Luther hurts her, she decides to leave her job as a motel clerk and run away with a mysterious stranger who drives a sporty black Camaro. She discovers as she heads north through Oregon in the black Camaro that driver Nick Bass is a sullen bank robber. What she also soon learns is that Luther – a gorilla with poor impulse control – is now in pursuit of them, his purpose unclear. Does he want her back, or does he want to hurt both her and Nick Bass? In a dark episode in a motel room Luther is overcome with toxic anger and kills a woman he picked up in a bar. The police begin pursuing Luther, and the FBI soon identifies Nick Bass as their bank robbery suspect. All trails lead to a seedy area of Portland, where Marti rediscovers her long-suppressed feelings for people she thought she hated.
