Jupiter’s Lifeless Moons is a surreal, sexual, cinematic romp through nocturnal America.

Dane is excited about spending a quiet Autumn in Pepper Heights, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio near the lake. He is a guest in a friend’s home. Her fake plants are mixed in with her real plants. Everyone is waiting for the snow. Upon getting a late-season job at the rough-and-tumble under-dog Pepper Heights Zoo, Dane becomes entangled in a strange plot involving the zoo’s premiere attraction, Zoe The Zebra. Something has been sleeping under Pepper Heights, caged in the dark rock for millions of years, under neat lawns edged by high wild grasses.
