Roadhead is set in the near future after an economic collapse has devastated America. Here, Brooke and Weasel, both 17, are trapped in a desolate Southwestern town where fuel is scarce. Communications between men and women have broken down, leaving a world where most interactions are purely sexual.
We meet Brooke and Weasel at the Monument Motel, which wilts along the expansive roadside. When Weasel finds keys to a weathered car that’s sitting out front, she knows it’s their opportunity to escape. In a moment of desperation they take the car and set out onto the open road.
Soon after they flee, they realize there are more obstacles to come.
