A brother and sister away from their native Japan end up temporarily stranded in the desert town of Littlerock, CA while on their way to San Francisco. All of the gossip they’ve heard about America’s shine and gloss begins to become less and less true as they befriend strangers and are engulfed by the cultural atmosphere of the nonmetropolitan landscape. A film directed by Mike Ott (Small Form Films). Official, and much more succinct, synopsis as follows:

“A sleepy Los Angeles exurb and its shiftless young residents are seen through the eyes of two Japanese tourists in this intimate evocation of a small town in Southern California where everyone’s talking but no one really understands.”
