A story about searching and longing. Or, the art of mosquito and vector control.
A nameless character (X) is on a work trip through the post-apocalyptic environment of the housing crisis in the Mojave Desert. His job is to exterminate pests from the pools of foreclosed homes. On the road through this isolated region, everything from dragonflies to tarmac reminds him of Chelsea, his ex-girlfriend.
As the trip progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to find any water. To make matters worse, he is losing contact with headquarters. The landscape he is passing through looks familiar. It is his life – empty, sad and isolated. Lovesick, he stops hunting for pests. He reflects on alternative ways of living and eventually finds himself in his own solitude.
This hybrid film fluidly crosses borders between fiction, documentary and essay. An impressionistic use of images, photos and narration reflects the narrator’s state of mind.
