Two strangers cross paths on a bitter winter morning in Chicago- the man, a Syrian-American who had left his homeland but failed to make a decent living in America; the woman, an abused and tormented nobody from Nebraska. In a final act of desperation, he leaves his petty existence behind and gets on the move. On a whim, she escapes from the prison of her old demons and joins him. They mount the saddle of a motorcycle and ride south. The running away part is easy enough. But will it be as easy to ever break free? A short story about unfulfilled dreams, precarious beginnings and a newborn love struggling to survive.
