As a mysterious high plains drifter travels across the wintry North Dakota prairie, he finds a man lying unconscious in the middle of the road and stops to lend a hand. After defrosting, the man explains that he's on his way to meet his pen-pal girlfriend for the first time, as she's being released from prison. Desperate for a girlfriend of his own, the drifter sees this as an opportunity to change his lonely existence, and hatches a plan to steal his new companion's identity, forever changing the destinies of all three people.
An unnervingly romantic, starkly humorous, and startlingly composed drama. --Roya Rastegar, The Huffington Post

Like another movie set in North Dakota (Fargo), Prairie Love depends on the stark backdrop of the landscape, in this case, desolate prairie in winter, to drive much of its plot.
Just the basics of the story: A drifter driving along a lonesome road in the middle of nowhere, dead of winter, comes across a body lying in the road in front of a pickup with the hood up.
Drifter drags the body into his pick-up, along with a small satchel, and discovers a wad of love letters inside written to a woman in prison. Eventually, the "body" recovers from the cold and turns out he's still alive. What's more, he was on his way to meet the girl for the very first time after a 3-year penpal relationship, when his truck broke down.
The drifter has other plans, decides he wants to meet the girl and figures she'll never know the difference.
This was a strange movie, one where you're not exactly sure what happened at the end, or what the characters were thinking. Or, for that matter, the significance of the dead deer that keeps pulling a disappearing act.
