This experimental black-and-white documentary is a road movie about the Wild West of the USA. Endless dry plains, giant cacti, unusual trees, a swimming pool among the palms. In other words: a look at Monument Valley, Hoover Dam, the Joshua Tree Monument and Death Valley, seen through the eyes of a traveller.
