When ten human beings cram their bodies and belongings into a van and embark on a weeklong journey into the desert, you can be sure the trip will represent something slightly different for everyone: adventure, relaxation, or even a romance produced by lack-of-sleep.
But at least they can all agree on one thing: that Lifetime shoots will inevitably go as unplanned and strangers will soon become family.
Mixing poetry and music, this film tells the story of four kids whose desire to escape the daily grind results in a weeklong voyage into the red sands of Arizona.
Tired of work, with big dreams of play, our group is overcome by the longing for a new place to roam, jump, dance and camp out. This is Salazar’s vision of bliss, a portrait of the road and a love letter to the crazy adventures that Lifetime can’t help but attract.
The story is split in 2. Where Part 1 mirrors the home movie, full of climactic moments and candid gems, Part 2 explores the land and all the escapist madness it generated.
“We drove endless hours falling in and out of sleep. I'd close my eyes in a forest and wake up in a red sand desert. The constant rumble of the tires on the road created a vibration that followed us everywhere.”
Why they may have stayed too long…
