A middle-aged woman (Maria Onetto) is driving alone on a dirt road. Suddenly, she hits something - perhaps a dog, perhaps a boy, perhaps something more mysterious.  Her phantom accident jars her onto a different perceptual plane: Everything about the ordinary world feels new, disconnected, and very, very strange, to her and to us.
