The Detour

Alex thought escaping her past was as simple as putting her hometown in the rearview mirror. But when her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere on her cross country road trip things get complicated…and fast. To start, she’s rescued by a sweet-talking local mechanic named Sierra who claims that her car won’t be able to be fixed for days. And what’s worse, Alex finds herself attracted to her. They go back to Sierra’s repair shop and Alex watches her work from the dusty old couch. And as the hot summer night swelters on, Alex finds her initial icy resistance to Sierra melting away.

PREVIEW
The week is winding down way too fast, and Alex can feel the heat between her and Sierra reaching a dangerous temperature.

When the part finally arrives for Alex’s car, they spend the night watching the town’s annual fireworks show together. And under the kaleidoscope of colors in the sky, their true feelings finally come out.
