Director, photographer and artist embarked on a trip through the Californian desert and the result is a film that is both a road movie and a false diary in super 8mm. It describes the path of a man who does not run away or hide, simply walks into nothingness, seeks to be nothing. During this crossing, Paulo Furtado composed part of his most recent album, "Misfit".
