Just out of prison for manslaughter, Sailor (Nicolas Cage) breaks parole to take Lula (Laura Dern), his inseparable lover, to California. Lulas mother, Marietta (Diane Ladd), accompanied by a private eye (Harry Dean Stanton), pursues the de facto fugitives to rescue her daring daughter from herself. In Big Tuna, Texas, a scruffy town inhabited by lowlifes, they encounter the thoroughly demented Bobby Peru (Willem Dafoe), who confirms Lulas observation that this whole worlds wild at heart and weird on top. Lynchs fantastical free-for-all helped put Sailor and Lula on the American misfit map when it won the Palme dOr at the Cannes Film Festival.
