ANTON AND LENA HAVE A SIMPLE SELF OBSESSED RELATIONSHIP TILL A CHANCE OPORTUNITY FALLS INTO THEIR PATH. $980,000 BURIED IN THE DESERT. AS THEY GET CLOSER TO THEIR DREAM, A WORLD OF LIES, MURDER AND GREED CAUSE THEIR RELATIOSHIP TO DRIFT. DOES FREE MONEY KILL LOVE ?
"As these flawed characters travel through a stark and beautiful Arizona landscape, we are repelled yet drawn in by the callous way they interact. A young woman steps over her boyfriends dead cousin in quest of money. A deranged strangler sings children songs as he kills. Characters self obsessed but utterly attention grabbing. This poetic and visual story of greed in the desert keeps ypu watching and wondering. Writer/Director Jeff Gallea's unique first feature film is told in a color saturated world of sad dreamers lost in the large American landscape."
