The mental, social and political disarray of the United States, filmed like a game of hopscotch or a variation on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. High school student Lillian runs away while on a school trip and traverses the spectrum of contemporary radicalism and madness, from white supremacists to Islamic radicals, from neo-punks to woke avant-gardists. At every leg of her journey, she comes into contact with hermetic worlds, whose citizens rant and rave to each other, blissfully ignorant of their neighbors. A story at the crossroads of a traditional fairytale, a picaresque narrative, and 1970s New Hollywood.
