Described by its director as “Mad Max bitch slapping Terrence Malick,” Dust of War/ rampages through a post-apocalyptic American Frontier as a lone soldier fends off a brutal warmonger to rescue a girl fated to be the savior of humanity. Our hero joins forces with a cynical war veteran and a slimy Peter Lorre-type to bring the girl to safety, encountering mysterious invaders, unmarked minefields, and traveling showmen along the way.
