Working for no one but me

Movie: Off the Map. An obscure character portrayal where New Mexico takes the part of one of the main characters. Out in the middle of nowhere, eleven year old Bo does what little a child in her circumstances can to rebel against her neo hippy/more bohemian parents. Her mother tries to hold herself and the household together while her father fights an annoying depression which a television set might have helped. Into this oppressive desert wasteland stumbles a taxman. An allergic reaction to a bee sting puts him in a delirious fever which serves as a catalyst for change in all their lives. Slow and lengthy, but worthwhile.
