The USA, today. Whether they are in the town’s subterranean canals, alone in the desert or in a simulator for the journey to Mars, men and women try to survive between deep sadness and dreams of somewhere else, be it real or imaginary. A post-apocalyptic portrait of America, a fluid narration and strong empathy for its protagonists… The revelation of a filmmaker.
