Lima tahun pengelanaan dan kehidupan di Gurun Mojave perlahan telah mempengaruhi hubungan intim si ahli geologi, Ren Lallatin, dengan pembentukan geologis tempat itu. Ia mempelajari gurun, menjejaki aktualitas vulkanik dan seismik, menetapkan sumber air dan lokasi peninggalan penduduk, dan mengidentifikasi corak-corak pemandangan yang menyembunyikan pernaungan gesitnya itu dari tatapan publik. Filem ini mengiringi si ahli geologi menjelaskan interaksi dirinya dengan alam, sementara terus-menerus menyampaikan kegelisahan oleh kehidupan sipil.

Five years of travelling through and living within the Mojave Desert have instilled in geologist Ren Lallatin intimate relations to its geological formations. She studies the desert, tracing its volcanic and seismic actualities, locates water sources and the relics of previous inhabitants and identifies landscape features that will conceal her mobile shelter from public view. The film follows the geologist as she describes her interactions with the natural world, while conveying a persistent unease with civic life.
