Trucker

Synopsis: Diane's free-wheeling life of drunken one-night-stands as a professional trucker hits a road block when Peter, her son, is dropped at her doorstep. Her former husband Len, whom she abandoned eleven years ago along with their new-born son, has cancer and no one else to turn to while he's in the hospital. Peter, resentful and wary, wants, even needs a mother who'll want him at this worrisome time but knows better than to expect this from Diane. With deliveries waiting and a mortgage to be paid, there's only one inevitable thing ahead for Diane and Peter - a road trip together.

Okay.

Oh, my wife's

gonna kill me.

She's gonna have

to stand in line.

Ow! Ow.

Slide over.

Ow.

God.

Where you going?

I'm suffering here.

Goddamn.

You're really a bleeder.

Kind of like what

you're doing though.

Shut up. [ Laughing ]

Oh, wait, wait.

Here. Here.

Here. Here.

[ Continues ]

Hold it down.

Shove 'em up in there.

I'm not putting tampons

in my nose.

Shut up, Runner.

You did that on purpose.

Yeah, you think?

Ow!

God, you're

a heavy sack of shit.

Why don't you settle down?

Why don't you--

Why don't you find Jesus?

What do you know

about Jesus?

Nothing.

Then why do you suggest

that I find him?

I don't know.

I heard he makes

people happy.
