Plot – Arthur and Annie Pope have been living in hiding for the past fifteen years, moving from one state to another, evading the police, always with fictitious names and bogus documents. Arthur and Annie met in the turbulent 1960s when they were in the streets protesting against the Vietnam War: he more violent in word than in action, she inclined to cultivate ideals of social justice and brotherhood. One day they found themselves involved in an assault on a napalm store, where unfortunately there was a guard who was wounded and mutilated. The couple, who at the time had one small child, is once again on the run along with their two sons, Danny and Harris, their second child, who is now ten. The four are in fact in a bind, living discretely, and in a state of suspicion, hiding their names and personalities as best they can.
