A guy, a girl, and a robothead hike across a desert planet in search of a mythical lake.
User Reviews: I came across this movie on HULU streaming, the description made it sound interesting.

In fact it is very interesting and the two leads are pretty good. They don’t explain much but judging on some of the dialog and the strange plant species they encounter, trying to find nourishment, seems like they must be on a planet that is not Earth.

Julia Garner is Rola and she is wandering through the vast desert. When Joseph Cross as Lernert comes across her she seems near death with white foam at her lips. He realizes she has eaten a poisonous bulb that resembles an edible one, he gives her something which saves her.

Each of them is wandering through the desert, and he is searching for a mysterious lake. He is also carrying an intelligent animatronic head that sees and talks. But only the head and part of his task is to find batteries to keep her "alive."

So, even though they have a brief encounter with a lost man it is basically these three characters, and only two of them are alive. It could easily have been a two character stage play, in this case the desert is the stage.

Actually nicely done overall but as a feature movie it doesn’t contain a lot of meat on its bones. You have to be in the mood.
