Inhalt

The family of Travis had already broken up years ago. Since then he has seen neither his wife Jane nor his son Hunter. Indeed, after the separation, Travis himself disappeared for four years without a trace. Then he turns up in a small town in the middle of the Texan desert without even being able to remember his past. With the aid of his brother - who also raised Hunter - he begins to recover his speech. Slowly, he also succeeds in building up a relationship with his estranged son. Together they finally commence a journey to look for Jane, who they find in a peep show in Houston, Texas.
