Synopsis: a group of weekend-warrior friends who decide to rev up their ho-hum suburban lives with one last-hurrah, cross-country motorcycle trip. Taking a long-dreamed-of breather from their jobs and responsibilities, they can’t wait to feel the freedom of the open highway. But when these guys hit the road, they have no idea it’s going to hit back...hard. Now, finding themselves in an unwitting rivalry with the real-life, bad-ass biker gang known as the Del Fuegos, and faced with secrets within their own ranks, this out-of-their- league foursome is about to discover that heading down the road to nowhere can take you places you never expected.
