Cozy, a dissatisfied housewife, meets Lee at a bar. A drink turns into a home break-in, and a gun shot sends them on the run together, thinking they’ve committed murder.
Near the Everglades, the “river of grass,” lives Cozy (named for her father’s favorite drummer), lonely, in a loveless marriage, ignoring her kids. She fantasizes being a dancer, an acrobat, and a gymnast. One night at a bar she meets Lee. He’s jobless, homeless, and unbeknownst to Cozy, is in possession of her father’s handgun. Dad’s a cop and lost the gun chasing a robber. Cozy and Lee climb a fence to swim in a pool. Playing around with the gun, they think they kill the pool’s owner, so they go on the lam. An odd partnership develops even though they’re short on ideas. But how can they escape their barren lot if they don’t even have a quarter for the road toll?
