“It's clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic." - San Francisco Chronicle
Lee, a shadow from the past, a troubled brother, rocks up at Mom’s place and crashes Austin’s quiet writing retreat. They’re haunted by their Old Man, who’s living destitute out on the desert, and seduced by the dream of Hollywood and the chance of a lifetime held out by producer, Saul. The heat builds across LA’s sprawling suburbs, the coyotes get bolder, alcohol flows and the brothers spiral towards... perhaps something meaningful or most likely out-and-out destruction.
