Set against the backdrop of
the southern California desert, Desert Rose tells the musical
story of an oppressive society, a cast of morally decrepit characters
and one man's struggle - against all odds - for true love.

and risks everything to become free from it - crossing The Line
and passing the all-seeing High Tower.
Along the way, he meets up
with a cynical beer CAN, two CACTUS bullies, three attractive yet wicked
