Description:
  With little resources and no electricity, a group of outcasts live their version of the American dream on a sixteen-mile patch of barren land in New Mexico. Beautifully rendered by brother-sister team Jeremy and Randy Stulberg, this documentary explores the lives of the people who make up the Mesa, where police are not wanted and firearms are a necessity. After getting over the bizarre lifestyle decision these people have made, the viewer begins to respect them: people who are not looking for pity or assistance, but just to be left alone to live off the land and enjoy the country they love so dearly.
