«Ten days after I stopped writing pornographic stories, I met William Burroughs», is how the voice over in Sasha Pirker's short film begins an autobiographical story. The picture shows a few views of wind turbines in the barren area around the spa of Desert Hot Springs in California. Like the person which belongs to the voice, the building at which the camera stops is revealed gradually. It's the Desert Hot Springs Motel, built in 1947, designed by the architect John Lautner (1911-1994).
