Present day. A young woman is driving down highway 200, having left her abusive husband in PV. Her young daughter is with her. There is some event - meteor, eclipse, violent thunderstorm - happening. She's nearly outta gas, and she sees the sign for LM. (We'll learn soon that the sign, the turn-off, the town disappear later.) She turns off, drives a few hundred yards, and her car dies. An old man walks up to her. He welcomes her, saying he/they expected her and her daughter. He says he will take her into town. Perhaps he has a burro, or a burro and a wagon. And then?
Apologies if this seems wacko.
