After having her identity stolen online, Diana leaves her family and goes on a road trip with her son’s pregnant girlfriend to track down the perpetrators. The mismatched travel companions form an unexpected bond as they concede to the hardships of their own lives, and their hunt for answers becomes an artful journey of transformative self-discovery. A hauntingly expressive cult classic in the making, this pastel-hued 16mm dramedy builds its own strange, beautiful, fragile world.
