Francisco is a middle-aged Cuban immigrant working at a holding house. Cecilia is a ten-year-old Mexican girl who ends up there with no family members to fend for her.

When Cecilia ends up on her own, she turns the desert into a fantastical world – creating characters and stories to make the hopelessness of the empty landscape a survivable habitat.

Through navigating what was supposed to be their promise land, both Francisco and Cecelia find a common hope in each other while journeying through the hauntingly beautiful and desolate world that is Lake Los Angeles. Lake Los Angeles will be the third film of Mike Ott’s Antelope Valley trilogy, following Littlerock (2010) and Pearblossom Hwy (2012).
