About Prince Avalanche
Alvin (Paul Rudd) and Lance (Emile Hirsch) are road workers assigned to spend the summer of 1988 painting yellow dividing lines and setting up reflecting poles on a stretch of remote Texas road. Alvin likes the peaceful atmosphere and relishes the chance to be outside, even if it is in a landscape ravaged by wildfires. Lance is a dopey slacker who can't wait to head back into the city at the weekend. Whilst Lance's insecurities and romantic inclinations get him into all kinds of misadventures, Alvin enjoys fishing for his supper and is happy writing to his girlfriend Madison (Gina Grande), who is also Lance's sister. Despite their differences and some sharp exchanges, an unlikely friendship develops between Alvin and Lance as they while away the long hours.
