The Screen Guide

DUSTY HEARTS is a black comedy about one man's destiny. Sax Elthan is a hapless musician, a refugee from the inner-city. Rejected by his girlfriend, he travels to the outback to look for work. One burning Wednesday he finds himself behind a highway, waiting for a lift, contemplating his future. It arrives in the shape of a beat-up Volkswagen with a wardrobe tied to the roof.
