"One of the year's most original debuts" Peter Debruge, Variety

"astonishing, and easily one of the most brazen and beautiful independent films I've seen in years." Susanna Locascio, Hammer to Nail

A modern–day retelling of Mother Mary's pilgrimage. Here the Virgin figure is Ma (RowlsonHall), a lanky woman who emerges from the desert wearing only a T–shirt, cowboy boots and head towel. She falls in with a similarly lonesome man, and they spend the next few days acting out hyperbolic representations of masculinity, femininity, aggression and submission within a roadside motel room.
