The ups and downs of life in L.A. are examined in this serio-comic film by Lawrence Kasdan, director of 'Body Heat' and 'The Big Chill'. When Los Angeles attorney Mack's (Kevin Kline) car breaks down in Inglewood, he is threatened by a gang of hoods. Rescue comes in the form of black tow truck driver Simon (Danny Glover), who convinces the gang to lay off. A friendship forms between the two men, as they and their families struggle to get by in an increasingly violent and haphazard world.
