Earlene (Ashleigh Sumner) runs away to Venice Beach to escape an old flame and falls in with bohemian intersex skater Bruno. Home rental scams, dangerous ways of raising cash and a headlong plunge into the desert bring the pair into contact with sexually confused carjackers, Scottish ex-strippers, tap-dancing drag queens and like minded runaways – all on their own journeys of self discovery. British filmmaker Simon Savory traveled to the California desert to make his debut feature, and emerges with a wild and visually striking ode to self discovery. A truly refreshing counterculture movie.
