A young US Marine, recently back from serving in the Gulf War, is found digging a hole in the middle of the Mojave Desert while his car, with his wife’s bloody and lifeless body inside, is found nearby. A female officer begins probing the inexplicable death.

MUBI's take

Casting her spellbinding sister as an officer investigating a murder, Nina Menkes journeys into a sandstorm of military and sexual violence. Refusing resolution, this fascinating film excavates an atmosphere of haunting that is aswirl with dreamlike imagery and mesmeric incantation.
