A couple who live in an underground tunnel in Las Vegas. A lonely guy who survives in the Californian desert. A girl who seriously plans to move to Mars. All of them are inhabitants of today’s world, both apocalyptic and brand-new. A mind-blowing and super-cinematic exploration of contemporary existence.
