Synopsis:

Alvin and Lance spend the summer of 1988 repainting the markings on an endless and deserted country road. Lance finds it hard to cope with their isolation in the wilderness far away from parties and girls - as opposed to serious Alvin who writes passionate letters from afar to his girlfriend, Lance’s elder sister. He and Lance meander through the woods in a little vehicle, argue, fight, and make up. Throughout the long, oppressive summer they only meet one other person - a mysterious lorry driver who plies them with homemade booze and then disappears as suddenly as he appeared.
