A bartender named Pierre (Anton Yelchin) returns to his hometown and finds himself in a dangerous situation involving Stella, a mysterious woman (Zooey Deschanel), and a violent criminal (Oscar nominee John Hawkes). In the peculiar small town of the Driftless Area, our version of reality may not be the reality we witness as mystery and revenge dominate the atmosphere and love may be the only currency that can transport you beyond this existence. Also featuring Alia Shawkat, Aubrey Plaza, Ciarán Hinds, and Oscar nominee Frank Langella.
