Faye Dunaway interrupts Warren Beatty trying to steal her mother's car. Bored with her job as a small town waitress, she teams up with him for a series of robberies of grocery stores, filling stations and banks. Along with their teaming up as outlaws is a romantic attachment, frustrated by his impotence. They add Michael J. Pollard to their activities as car heister and wheelman -- then Beatty's recently released-from-prison brother (Gene Hackman) whose nervous wife (Estelle Parsons) earns Faye's scorn during holdup jobs. The five are being hunted by police in several states and in Joplin they are surrounded, the brother and wife killed. The wounded Beatty and Faye escape and take refuge with Pollard's father, who turns them in to get a mild sentence for his son. Trapped, the notorious couple are riddled by gunfire from an ambush and their career of crime ended. Ironically, he had just been able to become Faye's real lover in a physical sense.
