Two bounty-hunting brothers – gentle, other-worldly Jeshua, and prosaic, traumatized Ezra – drag a dead body through a desert wasteland. A quest drives the men through a sun-beaten landscape marred by acts of lawless violence, but they nevertheless pass the time with a game of “twenty questions.” As the clock runs out for Jeshua’s final guess, the showdown with their mark commences.
Bullets fly. Blood flows. Shia LaBeouf is discussed.
