Zero Hour

Lorenzo and Paula are traveling on a straight road that seems to lead nowhere through a vast, empty desert. Their own personal paths instantaneously split, but they are still intertwined by this sudden and resounding event. What happens as they stall on this lonely highway will not only challenge the two lovers relationship, but it will also create a moral struggle within that could change them personally, forever.
