WELCOME HOME, CANYON KID...
NOW REACH FOR THE SKY!
When a straight shooting, and guitar strumming singing cowboy known as The Canyon Kid returns to Dirt Clod, Missouri, he finds his hometown in the grips of a tyrannical albino “hanging judge” named Basil Kadaver and his evil co-horts, including the slinky gypsy seductress Nastassia Kinky and her half-witted brother, Two Gun Boris. To make matters worse for The Kid, he also discovers that his childhood sweetheart, Darla Darling, is engaged to a known desperado who is now the town sheriff. How is The Canyon Kid going to save the day, let alone croon a few tunes, with a noose around his handsome neck?

See that car in your rear-view mirror?
The driver wants to kill you.
Don't take it personally.
You're just in the way.
Calvin Wheeler is an American dreamer in a triple threat cage match with his two biggest adversaries-everyday life and himself. His marriage to the woman he believed to be his soul mate is rapidly evaporating before his eyes. The book he’s been working on for over a decade is slipping through his fingers as he struggles to complete it. As these pressures grow, Calvin compensates by conjuring up outrageous road rage scenarios in the multiplex of his mind. To make matters even worse, he drives for a living. As his life, job and dreams simultaneously implode, his wild fantasies begin to literally bleed over into reality. Now with a gun in one hand and a steering wheel in the other, this distant runner-up in the human race feels empowered for the very first time. At least our boy’s finally found a purpose in life.
Red Asphalt tells a violent, tragic tale with darkly humorous touches and pointed social commentary. And the moral to the story?
Traffic can be murder...
