Synopsis: Otto is a white, middle-class, suburban punk. After being fired from his day job as a grocery clerk, Otto crosses paths with Bud (Harry Dean Stanton) and falls into the “always intense” life of a professional repo man in Los Angeles. As Bud schools Otto on the tricks of the repossession trade, word on the street tells them that there’s a missing Chevy Malibu with a huge finder’s fee attached to it. As Otto and Bud set out to nab the car, they encounter local punks, rival repo men, deranged scientists, shady government operatives, and a couple of dead aliens. – Andy G.
