Bart Bengo, a twenty-eight-year-old man being tried for murdering a woman he’d met three days prior to her death, has a second chance to prove his innocence. The evidence is stacked against him, but an act of fate results in a mistrial. With the Chief-of-Police out to get him, Bart leaves town before the DA has time to re-file charges.
He has one last opportunity to find his mother, who abandoned him when he was eight years old. She gave him a hug, a pack of Juicy Fruit gum, and an envelope to give to the nice Chinese lady who would be taking care of him while she was away. She then climbed into the cab of an eighteen wheeler and drove away.
Before being tried for murder again, Bart is determined to find out why his mother never came back for him. The first trail to his mother’s possible whereabouts, leads to a second murder and a nation-wide manhunt for Bengo. With the authorities trying to close in on him, Bart uses his ingenuity to evade law enforcement while continuing to search for a woman he’d been told was dead twenty years earlier.
