An artist is commissioned to weave the portraits of a random selection of townsfolk in Lost River.

For this task, he must interview each one - fifty-two in all, one for every week of a year - to discern the gestures by which he might portray them. His work becomes an odyssey through humankind, its social, political, sexual, humorous and spiritual aspects.

The chosen few are enlightened, insane, larrikins, fools, psychopaths, mindless materialists...people who have caught a glimpse of something strange, perhaps the borders of a world behind the everyday.
