"I first saw the show in its second preview, and right away, said, 'All these kids are gonna be stars.' Turned out I was right, ha! That cast boasted an incredible combination of talent – from Lea, to Jonathan, to Skylar, to John Gallagher… but that’s part of Michael Mayer’s genius, fitting the right people together.

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.
