There is a mythic city deep in the desert that vanishes into a mirage every time explorers get too close. Over the years, the shining utopia has passed into legend, and all have given up hope of finding its golden gates. All, that is, except an old woman and her eager assistant, who are crossing the desert in their beat-up convertible, hell-bent on chasing down the city of dreams.
