A filmmaker stuck in an arid, jobless Quebec winter embarks on an improbable quest across the United States, taking her director of photography along for the journey. Their route should lead them all the way to Los Angeles to meet the artist and filmmaker Miranda July, but nothing will happen as planned. L.A. Tea Time uses fantasy and humour to revisit the American landscape and the torments of the wandering artist in search of inspiration. An unusual travelogue, combining unlikely encounters, the apocalypse, ghosts and meditation.
