Until receiving a birthday card from him on her 18th birthday, Amy (Capri Anderson) hadn't heard from her real father in 18 years ... leaving her upbringing to a deficient mother and a schizo pervert stepfather. Using the return address on the card, Amy makes it her mission to track down her real father in Texas. She meets a trucker who just so happens to be heading there, but he's got problems of his own. Welcome to B. Skow's Runaway, where sex is hot and sticky, everyone's got a truck and a gun, and family is whoever will take you in.
Like her first feature for the studio—the delightful My Little Black Book—this vehicle for Vivid Girl Capri Anderson also benefits from a good storyline penned by David Stanley. The B. Skow feature raised the ante with excellent co-stars (chief among them Tom Byron), top-of-the-line cinematography, art direction and sound, and great sex scenes. It adds up to a first-rate adult feature that’s emotionally satisfying enough for couples fare but with hot enough sex for porn hounds.
The waiflike Anderson stars as Amy, who’s surprised by a birthday card from her presumed-dead father. After an argument with her mother (Lisa Ann) and creepy step-father Barry (Barry Scott), Amy heads off to find Daddy, guided by a return address somewhere in Paris, Texas (nice reference to Wim Wenders’ more arty journey of lost souls).
Amy first finds shelter with two friends, played by real-life couple Skin Diamond and Asphyxia Noir, who revel in their roles as hookers who love each other as much as they love their work—which these alt-porn stunners demonstrate in the first sex scene: a three-way with a client (Mark Wood).
As Amy cools her heels in the coffee shop while the girls work, she overhears trucker Tom (Tom Byron) telling the waitress (Phoenix Marie) that he’s heading back to Texas. Several plot machinations—and some great sex scenes—arise before the inevitable happens and Amy wheedles her way into Byron’s 18-wheeler.
Among those machinations are two solid sex scenes. First, Barry Scott and Lisa Ann discuss Amy’s departure, making veiled references to some shady business involving her real father before Scott takes on all three of Ann’s holes, including her sculptured ass. Even better is a steamy, athletic fuck with plenty of hard-pounding anal from Tom Byron and Phoenix Marie.
And it’s not just Byron’s sexual performance that stands out. The native Texan inhabits his character’s hillbilly skin, adding depth as a father who’s trying to keep his own family together while his job keeps him on the road. He tries to hold the luscious Amy at arm’s length, but her intense need for love on all levels eventually gets the better of him.
And there’s more sex and storyline worth discussing, but not spoiler alerts. Suffice to say it’s worth keeping that finger off the fast-forward button. In all, the viewer will be rewarded by six sex scenes (three with anal), some nice solos, and an engaging BTS segment.
