Jimmy and Julep were high school sweethearts. Two decades later their messy romance has come to a screeching halt in a car wreck. Jimmy’s pinned in the front seat of his yellow Firebird. Julep’s locked in the trunk. How did it come to this? Trapped, they await their fate as their past mistakes circle all around them. Whatever’s kept them tearing each other apart for a lifetime, might finally send them careening over the edge.
