A look at Bombay Beach, one of the poorest communities in southern California found on the shores of the Salton Sea, an inland lake stranded in the middle of the Colorado Desert. The Salton Sea came about as the result of a sudden influx of water following the breach of a dike over a century ago. Long ago, it was a popular tourist attraction. Nowadays, the lack of outflow and increased salinity has turned the sea into an ecological wreck. Around one hundred people still call it home. Here, we follow three of these inhabitants to discover the spiritual bond that unites them through their personal struggles, their imaginations and their love of the desert.
