Located in Los Angeles, we follow a striking woman, the passenger of a convertible car, driven by an unidentified driver through the city, passing its generic streets, billboards and motels, with an unknown destination.

The video sequences are frequently suspended, disjunctive and blurred, distorting our visual and emotional sense of place.
At once lyrical and intoxicatingly beautiful, we pass through discrete emotive atmospheres experiencing ambiguity, desire and longing. - Celina Jeffery
