Out West : Ben, on the run from bad luck, is hiding out as a night desk clerk in a seedy hotel in San Francisco's Tenderloin. There he meets Amber, herself a fugitive from a savage ex-boyfriend. But what starts as a casual relationship quickly turns complicated when their pasts overtake them. Two people wind up dead, and suddenly Ben and Amber find that trouble is their middle name. A dark, slyly humorous tale about crossing the line - from like to love, from good to evil, from innocence to guilt - Out West is about what happens when two ordinary, attractive people become killers.
