In south-western Texas, elongated mountain ranges, broad valleys, prairies and deserts pass by. Filmmaker Karsten Krause explores this imposing landscape and its many meanings, starting with its timeless beauty that has inspired many painters. Once, this part of the earth's crust was part of the ocean floor; the compressed skeletons of billions of sea creatures are now mined as limestone.

The human remains found on the route between the Mexican border and destination Houston also tell a timeless story, yet in an entirely different dimension: that of humanity that has since its very beginnings roamed the earth looking for safer pastures. Everything on earth is in constant motion at the smallest and the largest scale. The borderlands between Texas and Mexico, however boundless, seem futile in the light of these forces.
