Off and Running

Off and Running

Off and Running is a 1991 American film starring singer and actress Cyndi Lauper. She stars as a mermaid-themed lounge singer who gets involved with a caring but troubled man. Because of his involvement with horse racing and breeding (and consequent mafia ties) he is murdered in front of her, and she goes on the lam to escape his killers. On the way she takes on the company of a professional golfer and a rebellious pre-teen boy and together they attempt to unravel the mystery behind her slain lover's past. The film was not widely distributed and coasted into notability mainly because of Lauper's involvement. It is generally available on VHS for less than a dollar. The movie fared far better in other countries where Lauper's popularity has sustained. In Germany and Japan it was packaged as "Moon Over Miami".
