It tells the story of an OutlawCouple of sharpshooters -- former soldier Bart (Dall) and circus performer Laurie (Cummins). They are both obsessed with guns, but in a different way: Bart likes owning and shooting them, but would never hurt anyone living, while Laurie dreams of actually killing somebody. When they find themselves unemployed, Bart wants to look for a decent job, but Laurie seduces him into a robbery spree. Soon it ends up with murder, and they find themselves hunted by much more force they could ever outrun.

* TheOner: One particularly famous scene from the film has the camera placed on the back seat of Laurie and Bart's car, were it follows them as they are driving to their next heist, then executing the robbery, and then getting away from the scene of the crime. The whole scene ticks in at three-and-a-half minutes. The actors improvised for most of the scene.
