An aimless drifter who has been missing for four years, wanders out of the desert and must reconnect with society, himself, his life, and his family.

A disheveled man who wanders out of the desert, Travis Henderson seems to have no idea who he is. When a stranger manages to contact his brother, Walt, Travis is awkwardly reunited with his sibling. Travis has been missing for years, and his presence unsettles Walt and his family, which also includes Travis's own son, Hunter (Hunter Carson). Soon Travis must confront his wife, Jane, and try to put his life back together.

Starring the legendary Harry Dean Stanton, Dean Stockwell and Nastassja Kinski.
