Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two strangers are brought together by a powerful quirk of nature in this drama. Eugene (Michael Nickles) is a man in his thirties looking for a new meaning in his life. He thinks he may have found something when he discovers a mysterious wind tunnel in the desert that will carry the human voice for an unusual distance -- and he finds himself talking to Jackie (Heather Graham), a beautiful twentysomething who lives over 500 miles away. As Eugene and Jackie get to know each other without seeing one another, they find themselves caught up in the mysterious magic of the wind currents, said to have beneficial spiritual energies by Native Americans living in the desert. Desert Winds was written, directed, and produced by leading man Michael Nickles; pop singer Adam Ant also appears in a small role.
