It is a film about, variously, life in the rearview mirror, memories of other journeys (Poland to Texas), modern technology (the YouTube generation, e-mail seduction), the age of the container and the relevance of Pokemon cards to the new landscape of the big shed. It is about the crossroads of life, driving into the flatlands of late middle age, about fathers and sons and growing up in the cold war, about genocide and political assassination, and the postwar landscapes of Europe and the USA, and how life looks now, seen by a six year-old from the back of a car.
