Synopsis

Documentary about the lives of three men in the impoverished Californian desert town of Bombay Beach. The town is located on the shores of the Salton Sea, a man-made sea deep in the desert originally designed as a salubrious art deco holiday destination for rich Californians, but now little more than a pool full of dead fish surrounded by rusting abandoned buildings. Israeli filmmaker Alma Har'el draws on her music video background to weave together an evocative portrait of the town and three of its residents: bi-polar youth Benny Parrish, former oil worker Red Forgy and aspiring football player CeeJay Thompson.
