Creator Commentary:

This snapshot was taken during the shooting of my film about two estranged sisters who connect over a roadtrip across the California desert to their mothers house. In meeting each other for the first time, their lifelong preconceptions about each other, one growing up in America and the other in Czechoslovakia, dissolve as they begin to get to know each other as complex individuals rather than the imagined identities infused by separation.
