At 40, Lexi's life in London has fallen apart. Stunned by the loss of her mother and the collapse of her marriage, she flies to Los Angeles with a desperate plan: to search for the father who abandoned her when she was just an infant.
Alone and adrift, she holes up in a seedy hotel, searching for leads in the day, inviting strangers back to her room at night to play sexual games in which she can assert the control she no longer has over her life.
British stage actress Gemma Brockis, making a fearless film debut, brings this needy, self-destructive, brave and abrasive woman to ferocious life. Lexi's quest for family leads her to unexpected places and some answers to questions she didn't know to ask. Like her protagonist, writer/director Amber Sealey keeps it raw and honest, her compassionate but unsentimental eye alert to every quicksilver change in the emotional climate. No Light and No Land Anywhere is low-budget American independent filmmaking at its most uncompromising.
