Plot Summary
Jimmy (Guy Pearce), a fast-talking salesman, has big ambitions. While selling flooring, he has an idea that will make him a rich man. His dreams come to a grinding halt when his car breaks down in a small desert town. To pass the time he seeks the advice of a roadside fortuneteller.

    Sheri Linden The Hollywood Reporter

    The actors, all strong, give the lyrical but never artificial dialogue the ring of life. Pearce is riveting as a go-getter who finds himself trapped between a murky past and a future defined by ambition. show more
