Barstow, California

Deutschland 2017/2018 Dokumentarfilm

Summary

Route 66 between L.A. and Las Vegas shows the downside of the US-American dream. The neoliberal ideology never arrived in the small town of Barstow. To the sound of passing freight trains the poems of the murderer "Spoon" Jackson, whose family once came to the area full of hope, resound.
