Propelled from society by tragic turns, the people of Darwin, CA (population 35) an isolated community at the end of a weathered road in Death Valley, must now find ways to coexist in a place without a government, a church, jobs, or children. The near-ghost town’s survival depends on a fragile, gravity-fed waterline that descends from the mountains where top secret weapons are being tested. One “accidental” drop of a bomb, they half-joke, could wipe out their entire town.
Filmmaker is in attendance.
