Synopsis: We meet RASL, a dimension jumping art thief with a tattoo of a woman’s name (Maya) on his left arm, wandering in a desert battered and bloody. He recollects his memories on a job where he steals a Picasso painting (The Old Guitarist) from a tall house during a thunderstorm. After tagging RASL where the painting was and running from the police we learn he uses an immersion suit (resembling 4 airplane turbines) to enter “The Drift”, a place where he is able to travel to other dimensions.
He comes to a seemingly regular world and hides his suit, then visits a bar. He drinks and smokes heavily to recover from the pain of exiting The Drift, and goes to the jukebox. He notices that Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde album is instead credited to Robert Zimmerman on the title, meaning he has come to the wrong place. As he is about to leave, an eerie assassin with a lizard like face comes in and shoots at RASL; as he escapes his painting is shot.
Outside a chase and fight ensues, and RASL finds no I.D. of the man, and is startled to see a small rectangle block in the man’s wrist. He decides to go find a quiet place to meditate for a couple of hours (to be put in a more zen-like state of purity so he may enter the drift again). His final lines are “You can fix this. It’s never too late to fix it.” We then seem him out in the desert again.
