A horny coyote tries to seduce a sexy house cat.  The moon plays a melancholy tune on the violin.  A teenage boy competes with the moon for the affection of lovely Gabriela, a lonely army wife waiting for the return of her husband Benito from the first Persian Gulf War.  But Benito’s return home is fraught as he can’t help but bring the war from the field to the bedroom of his home on the edge of the Mojave Desert.  Gabriela senses that the war has changed him.  Is he still the man she used to love?  Or is there too much death on his hands?  When he looks at the sky, can he still see the moon?
