Trailer for Love and Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere.
Orson Welles once said “I don't think history can possibly be true.” This is surely the case in the dozens of speculative accounts presented in Love and Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere. In 2006, Steven Haataja, a brilliant mathematics professor in the isolated community of Chadron, Nebraska, disappears without a trace. When his body is discovered three months later, the cause of death sends the community reeling with questions, conspiracy theories and misplaced suspicions. As the unusual cast of characters inhabiting the town weighs in on Haataja’s final days, a vortex of esoteric theories, tawdry innuendos and illogical scenarios unravel. Gifted and iconoclastic author Poe Ballantine, whose acclaimed memoir inspired the film, leads us through the maze, offering insights into Chadron and his own life of wanderlust.
