CAST 2 m. 2 w.

Elizabeth Wolff is a middle-aged woman who comes to the Rio Grande Gorge bridge outside of Taos to celebrate the first day of her retirement. Isabel Swann is a young woman who comes to jump. Together they take off into the desert to see if one stranger can convince another in less than 24 hours that life is worth living. With darkness approaching, they run out of gas. Alone and lost in the desert, they meet a gun-toting priest and his son who live hidden from the outside world. Under a brilliant New Mexico moon, their four lives collide in all the magic, mystery and mania that marks how we live and love in America.
