Bland color photographs, seemingly shot from a car, document the drab emptiness of nameless American streets, the many dispiriting in-between zones found in contemporary America. The road itself becomes a boundary, an edge, with subtle differences in geography and opportunity on each side. Black and white images depict what’s hidden behind those streets, pieces of life, glimpses of disillusioned utopias of the american dream. With the supporting narrative of the screenplay, the pictures get fuller. The screenplay weaves together snippets of incidents in the lives of a handful of characters. The linked episodes paint a disheartening but telling picture of today’s America, where the nuances of racial, societal, and cultural friction simmer right at the surface. A limbo filled with tensions and doubts. Nothing happens apparently, but the story takes place in the silence of lives.
