A woman. A dog. A campervan. And 4,500 kms of wide open road.

Mot wakes up one morning to find that her heart is missing from her chest. She can breathe, she has a pulse -'but she feels . nothing.

So, she decides to go and look for it. With her dog enlisted as co pilot, Mot heads down the highway of lost hearts into the deepest core of the Australian outback -'navigating red dirt landscapes, fire and flood, brittle dryness, vast salt lakes, age old mountains and murky waters filled with lost souls.

An allegory for a country that's lost its heart, Highway of Lost Hearts is half gritty road journey, half magic realism and all heart. It leaves you pondering the question: when your heart goes missing, what lengths will you go to in order to find it again
