When motorcycling in the desert along the Colorado River, Nat Williams crashes into an unknown reality where nothing is familiar. Mojave hunters he stumbles across appear to be from another era. At first, they regard the stranger with suspicion, but their curiosity soon overcomes caution and they invite him to their village. During his stay, Nat glimpses two Anglo sisters in native dress, one exhibiting tribal tattoos. He hears their traumatic story, and pledges to keep their secret from those who would further upend their lives. Then he meets Tapique, a mysterious Mojave woman who stalks his thoughts, captures his imagination, and ultimately helps him navigate this perilous new path he has been thrust upon.
