On her to Alaska, in search of work, a girl, joined by her dog, breaks her car while crossing the state of Oregon. Her precarious financial situation will put her in a bind. Kelly Reichardt depicts the economic and moral crisis in her country by accurately portraying a life on the edge where every dollar is worth and daily decisions can become an issue. A simple and highly emotional story that ends up being an ode to friendship and the meaning of caring, giving and letting go. The film marked the definitive relevance of Reichardt on a world scale.
