This is a richly metaphorical adventure story of two women cast into the desert with their horses. Stumbling into a web of deceit and crime, they are spirited away in the desert darkness. Their fortuitous escape leaves them without shoes, pants, food or saddles; off track, lost to themselves and to their loved ones. They are compelled to find the truth and their way as they traverse for days through a dangerous and hostile desert environment, seemingly void of even the simple necessities of life. When circumstances beyond their control delay rescue, the women struggle to find their way to safety, overcome hardships, and survive in an unforgiving land. Meanwhile, their husbands search for them and struggle with difficulties of their own, creating a perplexing and frustrating dance of crossing paths as they circle through the desert in a seemingly futile search for their wives. Funny, passionate and complex, the story revolves around human nature and the ability to reach beyond our comfort zone in order to endure and survive.
