Plot Summary:

While embarking on a site-seeing tour of California, during their first trip to America, a Japanese student, Atsuko, and her brother wind up stranded in the small desert town of Littlerock. Exhilarated by a sudden sense of freedom, Atsuko extends her stay and finds friendship, romance, and appeal of what could be a new home. However, as she pulls back the layers on this unlikely paradise, she discovers a different America than the one in her dreams. The excitement of the new permeates every frame of this intimate evocation of a small town in Southern California where everyone is talking, but no one really understands.
