Terra Incognita is an absurd dark comedy about a New Jersey family. Joseph and Lena have just paid off their mortgage and are looking forward to a bright and beautiful future until they discover that the underground storage tank (UST) in their backyard is leaking. Suddenly, their life becomes a labyrinth of complex, bizarre and illogical attempts to clean up the oil-soaked soil beneath their home and prevent it from contaminating the groundwater and their marriage.
