Straitlaced Officer Cooper is both honored and thrilled to be assigned the seemingly simple task of escorting mob wife Daniella Riva across Texas, where she and her husband will testify against a major drug lord. It's a rare day out of the property room, and the intensely enthusiastic petite policewoman vows not to let her captain down. Having already earned the unfortunate distinction of prompting her own verb within the precinct, she is determined not to "Cooper it" this time. However, upon meeting the dynamic Mrs. Riva-a curvaceous Colombian beauty with opinions as strong as her accent-it's clear this will be no walk in the park. And before they can even agree on what high heels the statuesque Daniella can pack, the cops and Mr. Riva are ambushed, making his wife a widow and turning their anticipated easy drive from San Antonio to Dallas into a run-for-your-life race against time.
