On a road trip through an imaginary America in the 50s, Jimmy Jones Jr. recounts tales and setbacks of his father, a rather unusual man. Replete with nostalgic stories of diners, car washes and drive-in movies, as well as fields stretching as far as the eye can see.
We find ourselves plunged in an alternate universe, absurd and full of humour, where, in the shadow of his father, Jimmy clumsily tries to imitate this suffocating model of masculinity.
“Sometimes, you have to be able to see your life as fiction in order to dispel the frictions.” – Jimmy Jones Jr. –
