In its minimal and non-traditional plot, the protagonist travels about the country meeting with various acquaintances when not taking part in various mundane, day-to-day activities. There is no real rising action or climax, and Linklater's character does not change substantially throughout the course of the film.
The film was shot on Super 8 mm film and edited at a public-access television cable TV station, with Linklater starring and handling all production duties. Outsider musician Daniel Johnston also appears in the film.
The film never received a widespread release. It is only available on DVD and Blu-ray as a bonus feature on Slacker from The Criterion Collection.
