When Alex Macklin moved to the deserts of the south-west he was determined to give up his career as a painter and start making monumental land art. However, when a second major stroke leaves him motionless and mute everything changes. Kept alive only by machines and the desperation of his fourth wife, the family dynamic changes when Alex’s second wife and only child make their way to the dusty world where Alex lies. What does alive mean? How much control should we have over death?
