In the Fall of 1993, Carolyn King, a black woman, along with her younger boyfriend, robbed and murdered two different people, in two different American cities, 2300 miles apart from each other. The police were after them, but were always one step behind, as the couple road tripped across the country, committing crimes along the way.
