Travis vanished for four years. Now he returns, a lonely wanderer in the desert, crossing into the US over the Mexican border, silent and withdrawn. His brother takes him to Los Angeles; Travis meets his young son, slowly wins back his trust and sets off with him in search of Jane, Travis’s estranged wife and Hunter's estranged mother.
