In northern New Mexico lies a patch of dry, sandy land, 25 miles from the nearest town, a world away from our own. Welcome to the Mesa, a community of misfits, veterans, runaways and more than a few outlaws. This loosely woven family lives without running water or electricity - literally off the grid -, and in their postmodern Wild West they consider themselves patriots. Their underground economy is, however, fuelled by the growth and distribution of marijuana, which has brought the community under the suspicious eye of the government. Disillusioned after the death of their father and the outcome of the 2004 presidential election, film editor Jeremy Stulberg and his sister, artist Randy Stulberg, took to the road, coming across this melting pot of forgotten Americans. They documented not just the alternative community but also the many stories of the disparate individuals.
