Prairie Love

2011 / USA

From the frozen plains of North Dakota comes this wonderfully bizarre story about three people searching for love in the oddest ways. When a mysterious vagrant, wandering the deserted, snow-covered plains, discovers a nearly frozen local man, he stops to lend a hand. However, upon learning the man was en route to collect his pen-pal girlfriend, whom he has never met, from a correctional facility, the vagrant sees an opportunity to change his lonely existence. Blinded by his desire for love, the vagrant decides to take matters into his own hands—forever changing the destinies of all three people. Director Dusty Bias combines the Midwest’s harsh winter landscape with exquisite production design to create a world seemingly frozen in time. The absurdist humor and quirky onscreen oddities make the characters of this grim tale seem strangely lovable. Brazenly idiosyncratic, "Prairie Love" takes the love story into uncharted territory.
