Summary

Safecracker Doc McCoy (Alec Baldwin) is released from a Mexican prison through the intervention of Arizona racketeer Jack Benyon (James Woods), who needs Doc to supervise the robbery of a Phoenix dog track. With the help of his wife, Carol (Kim Basinger), Doc and two men selected by Benyon, Rudy (Michael Madsen) and Frank (Philip Hoffman), pull off a successful job, marred only by Frank's killing of a resistant guard. At the rendezvous point after the robbery, Rudy, who has already killed Frank en route, tries to ambush Doc, but is outdrawn and shot down.

When Doc and Carol arrive at Benyon's desert estate to split the take, Benyon taunts Doc, revealing that he and Carol had an affair while Doc was in prison. Carol shoots and kills Benyon, but Doc is shocked and angry at the revelation of her infidelity. The two begin their flight across state lines to El Paso, where false passports are waiting for them. Meanwhile, the wounded Rudy kidnaps a veterinarian, Harold (James Stephens), and his wife, Fran (Jennifer Tilly), and makes them drive him to El Paso, where he plans to intercept Doc. Also following Doc's trail are Benyon's henchmen, led by Jim Deer Jackson (David Morse).

On the run through Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas, Doc and Carol contend with a locker thief (Scott McKenna) who briefly makes off with their money at a Flagstaff train station; a car chase and shootout with police after Doc's picture is televised; and an unplanned trip to the desert in a garbage truck. After Harold commits suicide in a roadside motel, Rudy and Fran arrive in El Paso and wait for Doc at Gollie's Hotel. Doc and Carol show up, followed closely by Benyon's men. In an extended shootout, Doc and Carol kill Rudy and all but one of Benyon's men (the survivor is allowed to flee). As police cars converge, Doc and Carol hop in next to a compliant pick-up truck driver (Richard Farnsworth), who takes them over the border into Mexico and freedom.
