Wanda feels overlooked. Life as a stay-at-home mother of four did not turn out as she had intended. She longs for something more, and perhaps above all something of her own. Wanda leaves everything to be able to live a free life, but it is not easy to create something out of nothing.
Wanda is Barbara Loden's indie classic that deconstructs the American dream in a road movie that was ahead of its time and has been hailed around the world and inspired filmmakers for half a century.
