The Woman broadcasts her final destination (Oak Park High School, Kansas City, MO).

Reality shifts like a kaleidoscope as a teenage boy tries to thumb a ride by the last exit before a dark highway in Minnesota seems to turn into a black hole.  He may be a fugitive or a model or a community college dropout...and is that Medea who just arrived?  And Elvis?  Darth Vader?  Aliens?  Or is none of it real, and he's just a kid stuck outside his house on a freezing cold night trying to negotiate his way back in?
