Near the Everglades, the “river of grass,” lives Cozy (named for her fathers favorite drummer), lonely, in a loveless marriage, ignoring her kids. She fantasizes being a dancer, an acrobat, and a gymnast. One night at a bar she meets Lee. Hes jobless, homeless, and unbeknownst to Cozy, is in possession of her fathers handgun. Dads a cop and lost the gun chasing a robber. Cozy and Lee climb a fence to swim in a pool. Playing around with the gun, they think they kill the pools owner, so they go on the lam. An odd partnership develops even though theyre short on ideas. But how can they escape their barren lot if they dont even have a quarter for the road toll?
