A sudden agonizing allergy to electricity
causes a successful New York television producer to lose his identity
and purpose. Finding himself in an off-the-map Texas place, he uses a
stolen ax to chop down the local power line, quieting the painful buzz
in his head. He soon meets and falls in love with a mysterious woman,
who is involved with a half American Indian man who lives in peace with
this rugged back country. Compassionate and strong, he is also short-tempered.
A troubled story unfolds. Her past is slowly unveiled through the unraveling
of the outsider's mystery. His growing friendship with this local couple
creates conflicts that unwind in unexpected ways that make one question
the basis of modern living, the meaning of love and madness, and whether
we chose our destiny or it chooses us.
