Features a DownerEnding and NoEnding with Mike abandoned collapsed on the road on which he began the movie. The implication is that his story will continue in much the same way, or as he says, "This road will never end. It probably goes all around the world."

As the credits roll, a car drives along and a man jumps out, picks Mike up, drags him into the car and drives off with him.
