The Motel Life explores the intense bond between two brothers (Emile Hirsch & Stephen Dorff) living on the fringes of Reno, Nevada. They grew up dependent on each other and their big imaginations to escape the challenges of their transient life. When the brothers are involved in a fatal accident, it forces them to choose between running or facing reality. It's a story of brotherhood, shared dreams and the redemptive power of hope. Based on the novel by acclaimed NW author Willy Vlautin.
