Two old friends, Kurt (alt-country singer Will Oldham) and Mark get together for an impromptu camping trip in Portland, Oregon. For Mark, the trip offers a respite from the pressure of his imminent fatherhood; for Kurt, it is part of a long series of carefree adventures.
Reichardt's elegiac road movie subtly captures the two friends’ realisation of how much they have grown apart. Featuring an original soundtrack by Yo La Tengo.
