Buzz and Betty Wall are a young couple living in a trailer in the desert outside Cactus Gulch in Arizona. Their biggest dream is to move to Hawaii and therefore they decorated their trailer house in Hawaiian themes complete with pink plastic flamingoes and palms. While Betty is trying to get pregnant, Buzz has ambitions to bring a new sunscreen lotion on the market. Financing is difficult and Betty asked him to get a real job. Meanwhile Turkey, the psychotic half-brother of Buzz, escapes from jail. He comes to the trailer, bonds Buzz, kidnaps Betty, steals $10,000 and flees in the direction of the Mexican border. Luckily Buzz is found and freed by Maya, his ex-girlfriend, who now works as a TV reporter. With Turkey's trail they take up the chase to rescue Betty.
