Elvis sits by the pool, trying to calm down. Priscilla comes out, slaps him across the face. Confused, he goes to the garage, revs his red Harley, his favourite. He drives it fast, out to Tupelo, to the house his father built for $180. The one he couldn't make payments on. The one they got thrown out of. Sometimes, he doesn't understand why things happen the way they do.
