X-ing (2009)

This film is about the fiery fickle heart of adolescent love told through the eyes of desert Armadillos.  Our young lovers bask in their new found relationship even as his eyes occasionally wander to a nearby temptress.  His hopes and his love are squashed, when she goes after a windswept flower blown into the seemingly abandoned highway.

The ghost of his love floats and cries alongside him.  His deep mourning over his loss is cut short when he’s reminded the temptress is still nearby.  When he tries to take the flower from his love’s corpse, her jealous ghost will do anything to stop it.
