The Wanderer takes place in and around a car on the streets and freeways between Los Angeles and San Diego. The main character is a woman in her 30’s called “The Wanderer” for whom driving has become a way of life. When her car breaks down she comes across Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first European explorer to set eyes on the coast of California in 1542. Cabrillo appears to be lost and begs The Wanderer to help him continue his exploration of discovery. Together they drive down the coast of California from Los Angeles to San Diego, becoming comrades as they discover and name new lands.
