The short tells the story of a young couple in crisis who finds their way to a desert motel where three odd men plan to meet them for questionable reasons. This film explores what makes the unbelievable believable.

Although Kirsten Dunst seems to be a director with a big talent for composition, style and atmosphere, this film left me with no real emotional respose. In a 5 minute short, you need to make the story more clear and simple.
This short is properly short :) to the point it's actually hard to tell something about it... Well, I liked the music, and certainly the mood is present, we also get to meet the characters, then it's THE END. It definitely is intriguing, I even watched it twice, hoping I missed something the first time; but yes, the film is based around the mystery and the story that is untold.
This nativity story (with shades of Cormac McCarthy) contains some well-composed shots and a pleasingly Satie-esque score which lends the picture a sense of enigma. Bodes well for an extended film by Dunst.
