Sal is just another writer trying to become famous in the United States. He's been writing for quite a long time, but Lady Luck still refuses to smile at him. Devastated by the passing of his dad, the young man embarks on a road trip to get himself together and find inspiration for a new book. On the road, he becomes friends with Dean, a free-spirited young fella who's traveling with his beautiful wife. The three of them take a trip across the country's southwest, learning new things, gaining knowledge and having life-defining experiences. They are young, wild and free - the unknown is the only thing that excites them. However, what started as a fun trip turns into something entirely different.
