“Driving to a wedding in Los Angeles through the Mojave Desert, Paul and Adrienne seem destined for a life of genuine love and happiness. Road-weary, they decide to stop for the night at lonely Roy’s Motel and Cafe. This roadside artifact proves to be a strange and surreal place with an unsettling mix of travelers, including front-desk manager Frank and his promiscuous wife Sandy. Ultimately, these ill-fated lovers lead Paul and Adrienne down a path of tense and emotionally charged experiences. In the end, a horrifying secret from Paul’s past is revealed with grave consequences for all parties involved.”
