An American family takes an apocalyptic road trip through the US West. A summer holiday of camping, mini golf, swimming, and baseball, in landscapes inscribed by extermination, genocide, and war. An essayistic road-movie on the dark side of the US, interweaving home movies with a spectacular archive of nuclear tests and indie-folk music, raising contemporary and timeless ecological and political questions.

In 2009, Erin Wilkerson and Travis Wilkerson founded the political art collective Creative Agitation, and their work has been screened at festivals in Venice, in Berlin in Locarno and elsewhere. Travis has been making bold political films since the mid-1990s, most notably Did you wonder who fired the gun? (2017), screened at dozens of international festivals. Erin is also the Managing Editor of NOW Journal, and is pursuing a PhD in Art Practice from TransArt­.
