They struggle to stay one step ahead of the killer while Perry tries to reach his bride-to-be, and Ella tries to steal the diamonds from the killer to renezvous with her boyfriend in Cabo. Dodging bullets and a tightening dragnet, they survive on their wits as a begrudging relationship develops.

Her drunk/gambler father forced Ella to find life guidance through the employees at Gold's Gym. Ella can throw a punch or pull a heist without batting a beatiful eyelash.

    Perry Jordan (young 20's) Perry is well-educated in everything but life. He's just out of college, a wannabe thriller writer, with little life experience and a repo company he hopes will provide him with money and material for his novels. So far he has been drifting through college to love, leaving him unsatisfied and only able to express himself through a quick wit and an ironic sense of humor.
