A short synopsis follows:
Along the desolate and famed Route 66, which one time hosted pilgrims of the highway from all over the world, weary travelers are in search of a little rest, some hot food, and a peek at the bizarre collection of desert attractions like a mummified human and a stuffed armadillo. During a dark and stormy night, Sarah, a stranger with a secret, stops off at the café which is home to these oddities, and sets in motion a desperate encounter with the residents of this strange emporium. This is the story of a psychological struggle of life and death that unravels the family's own tragedy. A haunting night years before when violence swept in off the endless desert like a hot blistering wind and left the inhabitants of the café trapped in a lifetime of isolation and loneliness. Starring Betty Buckley (Wyatt Earp, TV's "Oz"), Lori Heuring (Runaway Jury, Anger Management), Clare Kramer (The Rules of Attraction, Bring It On), Busy Philipps (TV's "Freaks and Geeks"), Jodi Lyn O'Keefe (She's All That), Johnathon Schaech (Sea of Dreams, That Thing You Do).

Johnathon Schaech: Well, men are insecure in bed. We like to be talked to. You have to bring all of the senses into the bedroom. Incorporate your visual, as well as your smell and touch.
Johnathon Schaech: My grandfather's German. Just spell my name right - that's all I ask.
Johnathon Schaech: (about how it feels to see one of his scripts coming to life) Just seeing the actors say the lines. When they say, "Thanks, it's fun for me to say these lines. It's really fun." That's a great feeling.
Johnathon Schaech: Acting is the art of living and if you give up on it - you'll own too much regret inside.
Johnathon Schaech: When I got married I changed my focus, I wanted to concentrate on my writing more and I did. My ex was very supportive of my career path for the most part.
Johnathon Schaech: Tom Hanks was the most inspiring individual I have ever worked with on and off the court. To stand with him on-set or work beside him again would be something I look forward to. In addition to that I have had the chance to direct the brilliant Djimon Hounsou. Now he's another actor I would long to work with again. So many great spirits out there, so little time.
Johnathon Schaech: (talking about how he got into acting) It was always in my mind, something that I knew ever since I was a little boy.
Johnathon Schaech: The best stories today are in the temple - the movie theater. I think more people go to movies than go to church. Great movies made me who I am.
