Superior, Arizona is the nearest town and Bobby finds a mechanic (Darryl) to fix his car. At the garage, Bobby and the mechanic have a confrontation and during the scuffle, Bobby has two of his fingers cut off. He then decides to take a walk around the town and comes across a beautiful woman (Grace) coming out of a store. He carries her packages to her car and after some small talk she invites him to her house for a shower. Not knowing that she is married, Bobby makes advances towards Grace. After some flirting, he kisses her and at that moment her husband (Jake) walks in. Once more, Bobby gets into a fight but is able to escape. As he is walking again, he realizes that the accident at the mechanics show was no accident. He knows that it was a warning as to what will happen if he does not deliver the money. Jake pulls up and asks him if he would like a ride. During this ride, Jake asks Bobby if he would kill Grace for a price. Not knowing what to think, Bobby gets dropped off and walks to a convenience store. He has been carrying around the gangster’s money and while he is in the store, it get robs. Now he does not have the money for the mechanics or the gangsters. Recalling what Jake had asked him early, he thinks about taking him up on the deal.
