In the heat and desolation of the southwest, three people are connected and disconnected by proximity, nature and circumstance; Dwight is a New Age DJ; Ramon is an experimental composer and filmmaker; Ash displays numerous tattoos. Each elaborates on central and sometimes disturbing chapters of their lives. The tape culminates with Ramon's harrowing account of a friend's downward spiral.
"... gripping and eloquently controlled." -Bob Riley, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Les vies des trois personnes de Santa Fe sont tantôt autonomes, tantôt reliées entre elles par la proximité, la nature et les circonstances. Dwight est "disc-jockey" pour une station de radio nouvel-âge. Ash montre ses multiples tatouages et Ramon est un compositeur et réalisateur expérimental au passé héroînomane qui a déjà été membre d'une secte religieuse orientale.
