Through a chain of events, the landscape of life begins to pan out for a group of friends trapped in a desert town of strip malls and racist townies.
Newhall, California is a place where the youth work at Video Depot, go to community college and struggle with jocks and townies. A group of young suburbanites wade in the currents of life during that all too familiar time of transition from aimless youth to trying to find a purpose or direction. With high school in the rear view and another election going the way of the Republicans, they pass their time by listening to music, attending community college, debating topics from commercialism to politics and trying to find a cause worth fighting for.
Accompanied by a driving contemporary soundtrack and dreamy score by Derek Fudesco of Pretty Girls Make Graves, director Mike Otts inspired debut reflects the attitude of growing up unsure through the turbulent days in one year of a collection of friends: their friendships, their loves, their politics, their brush with racism and culture clash. It is a subtle story that captures the moment in ones life when the only thing more uncertain than today is tomorrow.
