The films follows a man through the post apocalyptic environment of the housing crisis in the Mojave Desert. His job is to rid the pools of foreclosed homes of unwanted pests. On the road through this isolated region, he reflects on alternative ways of living and finds himself in his own solitude.

The form reflects the narrator's state of mind through feature film elements and an impressionistic use of images, photos and narration.
