"This was a brilliant cast all around. Ms. Wanamaker was simultaneously repressed and wild, sad and scary. I learned so much watching her, but more importantly, I felt so much watching her.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
