Description AUSTIN is a Hollywood screenwriter on the verge of his big break. In from the desert is Lee, his on a “working vacation".

He’s a thief, televisions mostly. Like a modern day Cain and Abel, these two brothers proceed to tear into each other’s lives, questioning each other’s ideals and waging war not just on each another...but themselves.

Sam Shepard’s classic play True West has been described as a civil war between two brothers.

A dark comedy about the double nature that satirises the
American dream and the romantic western myth
