Considered a true American classic, Sam Shepard's Pulitzer Prize-winning Fool for Love finds a woman named Mae hiding out at an old motel in the Southwest. Eddie, her old flame and childhood friend, shows up and threatens to metaphorically and literally drag her back into the life from which she had fled.
