One Road to Quartzsite

Ryan Maxey
United States, 2022, 89 min.

In English.
Includes violence, nudity and adult language.

It is late fall in a sleepy desert town in Arizona. Over the course of a few weeks, thousands of snowbirds, retirees, crustpunks, trumpers, loners, and fugitives all descend upon Quartzsite, Arizona. They set up camps, intermingle, and an unlikely community is formed. Some of them bought into the dream and lost everything in the Great Recession. Others dropped out long ago. Now they're all neighbors on the same piece of dirt.
