Synopsis: 
Ruby, a mysterious, leather-clad badass, drags a trunk with unknown cargo to a seedy Roadhouse in the middle of nowhere. ​ Inside, three overly friendly hicks overpower her and prepare to have their "dueling banjos" way, when her trunk teeters over and... out... ​ pops... ​ RICK. ​ A "man" with an unquenchable thirst and an allergy to the sun. ​ In short order Rick and Ruby dole out their own form of frontier justice on the trio of hillbillies in a suitably grotesque and oddly satisfying fashion. Heads and dad-jokes roll.
