Summary
Several cross-country travelers--including a writer, a family on vacation, and a professor and his wife--end up in the little mining town of Desperation, where a crazy policeman and evil forces compel them to fight for their lives
Summary
Route 50 runs through the sparsely populated mining town of Desperation, Nevada — but for several travelers, it may be the end of the road. After an ecclectic cast of characters finds its way to Desperation, they encounter the town sheriff, who's not about to let them leave. -- Description by Dawn Towery
