In a motel room at the edge of the Mojave Desert Eddie pays a visit to his on-again-off-again lover May in the hopes of winning her back. Eddie wants to put his philandering behind him and start a new life with May, but after too many second chances, May has moved on. What unfolds is a heated and tense negotiation of a love tangle that has more history and baggage than anyone could have imagined. A dark and poetic riff on the lies we tell ourselves, and the cost inflicted on the people we love.

Featuring Pilar O'Connell, Andrew Shanks, Kevin Kelly, and Paul Shapiro.

Age recommendation: 14+ for mature themes
