Travis Henderson, an aimless drifter who has been missing for four years, wanders out of the desert and must reconnect with society, himself, his life, and his family.

Winner of the 1984 Cannes Palme d’Or. Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire) and Sam Shepard follow the mysterious, nearly mute drifter Travis (Harry Dean Stanton) as he tries to reconnect with his son living with his brother (Dean Stockwell) and his missing wife (Nastassja Kinski). This depiction produces a powerful statement on codes of masculinity and the myth of the American family, as well as an exquisite exploration of a crumbling world of canyons and neon. (West Germany/France/UK, 1984, 150 min., R, English | Dir. Wim Wenders)
