Garret Williams made his directorial debut with this tale of an urban black couple trapped in a desert town of rednecks. Byron (Terrence Howard) and Nina (Nicole Ari Parker) are driving a BMW from Chicago to L.A. when they experience a back-road breakdown. Teen Mooney (Brendan Sexton III) tows them to a white-trailer-trash town where they're charged $500 for repairs. When the BMW dies again, they stay overnight in a motel, and the situation soon gets grim. The characters in this low-budgeter were first introduced in a 1996 short. Spark was shown at 1998 film festivals (Sundance, Berlin). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    really enjoyed film


    Much better than had expected, and it is not about racism, but about the combustible rage of some young men. The first hour of the film, I felt like slapping some sense into the Terrence Howard character, but then there was this other young man with a more concealed, deeper deadlier anger. No it was not about a town filled with seething one dimensional racists. The movie could have still been effective if all the players were of the same race.
