One night on a lonely highway, a speeding car tosses a satchel of money, meant for somebody else, into Jane and Alan Palmer's back seat. Alan wants to turn it over to the police, but Jane, with luxury within her reach, persuades him to hang onto it "for a while." Soon, the Palmers are traced by one Danny Fuller, a sleazy character who claims the money is his. To hang onto it, Jane will need all the qualities of an ultimate femme fatale...and does she ever have them!

After Jane's first attempt to kill off Danny on the trip to the hills, Jane goes to the beach and abandons her car. Then she walks to the ocean and throws something into the surf. The assumption is it is her husband's gun. (but she possibly tossed his wallet or some papers that she took out when leaving the car) and yet Jane has the gun at several points later in the movie.
