Cast & Crew
13-year-old Robert flies into Turkmenistan to visit his engineer father, but must make a long trek through the desert to reach his father's remote project area. Hitching a ride with truck-driver Pjotr and Pjotr's nephew, Robert soon discovers that Pjotr is running drugs. The truck breaks down and Pjotr disappears to search for water. Robert and Pjotr's nephew are left to fend for themselves in the arid desert, with no water, no directions and no common language between them.
Shown at Mill Valley Film Festival October 7-17, 1999.
