The film follows 2 security guards George (50 -100yrs) and Richie (27-40yrs) who through a clerical error have been guarding this remote baron landscape long after the oil company have pulled out. Two men stuck together, with two very different views on the world around them. George yearns for the world before this where he was a respected security guard. Now no one seems to quite know what he does, though he tries to make something of his work, searching for his worth in this job. And Richie, the younger man with out a care in the world. He can’t understand why George takes everything so seriously, why can’t he enjoy not having someone looking over his back all the time. He still gets a paycheck every month.
