Driving through the desert at night-time to go to a business meeting, a man gets a phone message from his sister, who complains about his absence at his own father’s funeral. A wolf on the road forces him to pull over and in the trunk he accidentally finds his dead father’s lost coat. He seeks refuge in a lonely gas station where a mysterious woman sends him on a mental trip that ends in an emotional reacquaintance between father and son. At dawn the man ignores a call from his boss, and, wearing his father’s coat, he leaves together with the wolf.
