In a series of warped, image-driven episodes, five strangers in the American West navigate overlapping landscapes of paradoxical fantasy. Constantly shifting perspective, the fractured narrative revolves around a poet, a hitchhiker and three motel rooms. A surrealistic combination of sparse dialog, unsettling characters and abstracted motion graphics animation, the film is a dreamy revision to the classic road story.
