A sixteen-year-old Colorado youth escapes from reform school and flees to the mountains, where his desperate situation forces him to confront the costly violence in his nature

Blackwell North Amer
Set against the unforgiving landscape of blizzard-swept Colorado, Too Cool begins with the squeal of tires and adrenaline rush of a high-speed car chase. Elbert Earl Evans, known as Triple E, sixteen years old, has busted out of reform school and taken off with his girlfriend, Jeanne Windriver, in a stolen Oldsmobile. Pursued by police, Triple E and Jeanne escape by turning onto a backwoods road, where the car eventually stalls, trapping the two youngsters miles from civilization in a deadly snowstorm. Faced with a situation of growing desperation, Triple E confronts the violence in his nature - from his street skirmishes to the betrayal suffered at the hands of reform-school teachers who put their own dreams of glory ahead of his rehabilitation.
