Roadhouse 66 is a 1984 film that is centered around Beckman Hallsgood, played by Willem Dafoe, a young man who is on a mission to find an abandoned town in the middle of the desert called "Lucia". Beckman is desperate to find a place where he can start over and escape from the life he currently leads. His journey leads him to a small desert town called "New Jerusalem," where he encounters a series of strange characters that would change his life forever.

Upon his arrival in New Jerusalem, Beckman gets into a minor brawl with a group of locals outside a bar called "Roadhouse 66". To avoid any further problems, Beckman ends up befriending the bouncer, Johnny Harte (Judge Reinhold). Harte is the gatekeeper of sorts for the Roadhouse 66, always ready to protect the establishment at any cost. Beckman and Johnny form an unlikely friendship, which would be put to the test throughout the events of the film.

In New Jerusalem, Beckman is able to procure a job as a mechanic at a local repair shop. He begins to build a life in the town, and slowly but surely falls in love with a young woman by the name of Bernadette LaRue (Kaaren Lee). Bernadette is a free-spirited artist, who is drawn to Beckman's mysterious demeanor.

The story unfolds around Beckman's relentless pursuit of finding the town of Lucia. Along the way, he meets a host of unusual and eccentric characters, including a fortune-teller, a group of aging hippies, and an ex-con turned preacher.

The film is a story of self-discovery and redemption, as Beckman confronts his past and tries to make amends for the mistakes he has made, and the secrets he has kept hidden. Throughout the film, we see Beckman struggle with his demons, and try to make peace with the life he has led, while desperately searching for a better future.

As the story progresses, Beckman begins to lose sight of his goals, and finds himself in over his head. He is pursued relentlessly by a group of local thugs, who are hell-bent on ensuring that he does not interfere with their plans to build a new resort on the site of the abandoned town of Lucia. The road to reaching his goal becomes increasingly treacherous, and Beckman finds himself relying more and more on his newfound friends to make it through.

The film is a well-crafted drama, with moments of humor and suspense. It is a character-driven story that is both engaging and entertaining. The performances by the three leads are strong, with Willem Dafoe giving a standout performance as the brooding Beckman.
