After losing a race on the East Coast, Bud Clay packs his bike into his van and heads west. But something is obviously plaguing him: his lost love, Daisy, returns to him in haunting flashbacks. He stops by her old house and sits with her parents, but Bud seems incapable of connecting, of speaking. Bud Clay is so beset by Daisy's memory that nothing appears to be left inside of him. All that remains of Bud is a weathered, wordless shell diligently proceeding toward Los Angeles, toward Daisy, a quest whose narrow, obsessive focus is reinforced by Gallo's oddly framed close-ups, the stretches of silence, the sparse Midwestern landscape, and Bud's failed interactions with women on the road. All named after flowers, the three women Bud meets do nothing to alleviate his pain nor prepare him for his infamous confrontation with Daisy.
