The Film

Robert Mueller, a young Marine, is found wandering the Mojave Desert, a woman's body in the trunk of his car. The lead investigating officer, a woman in "this man's Army," must piece together the foggy circumstances. What led an honored Gulf War veteran to murder his wife? Disembodied voices, contradictory theories, and murky hallucinations gradually gain momentum as one outsider probes the motives of another in the inexplicable death of a third.
