Plot Summary: An all-star ensemble of "second generation" talents star in Joyride. Desi Arnaz Jr., Robert Carradine (Revenge of the Nerds), Melanie Griffith (Body Double and daughter of Tippi Hedren), and Anne Lockhart (Troll) star in an adventure of three Southern California teenagers who are fed up with their humdrum lives and head to Alaska for a new start.

Unfortunately, the frontier life in Alaska proves to be no oasis when John, Scott, and Susie become the object of pointed acts of violence from the not-too-friendly natives. Scott and John both take jobs working on the Alaskan pipeline, but soon they're high-tailing it across the border with $300,000 in stolen loot! Chased by the police and vengeful union bosses, the trio escapes - barely! Now it's off to further adventures.
