Reality shifts like a kaleidoscope as a teenage boy tries to thumb a ride by the last exit before a dark highway in Minnesota seems to turn into a black hole. He may be a fugitive or a model or a community college dropout...and is that Medea who just arrived? And Elvis? Darth Vader? Aliens? Or is none of it real, and he's just a kid stuck outside his house on a freezing cold night trying to negotiate his way back in?
