Plot: A Denver family man who’s always been responsible with his personal finances is shocked to learn that his credit score is in shambles. And if he can’t clear his name in a week, that bad score will haunt him to the day he dies. A little detective work leads him to Orlando, Florida, where a woman who has staked her claim to his name is living a life of luxury. When the police refuse to offer any help, the man realizes that his only choice is to catch the imposter himself and bring her back to Denver to face justice. Unfortunately, this wily fraudster isn’t going without a fight, and with 2000 miles to go, every step will be a struggle.
