THE BROWN BUNNY is both a love story and a haunting portrait of a lost soul unable to forget his past.
After finishing a motorcycle race in New Hampshire, Bud Clay (Vincent Gallo) loads his racing bike into the back of his van and begins a cross-country odyssey to Los Angeles where he is to compete in another race. During his trip, he meets three very different women: Violet (Anna Vareschi), a wholesome all-American gas station attendant; Lilly (Cheryl Tiegs), a fellow lost soul he connects with at a highway rest stop; and Rose (Elizabeth Blake), a Las Vegas prostitute.
Though he can never escape his intense feelings for the love of his life, Daisy (Chloë Sevigny), he plans to reconcile with her when he reaches Los Angeles.
Along the way, he also makes a series of unusual stops; at his childhood neighborhood (where he visits Daisy's mother); at a pet shop in the Midwest; and at the surreal Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
Arriving in Los Angeles, Bud checks into a motel before visiting the abandoned home he once shared with Daisy. He leaves a note, hoping she will turn up at his motel room . . .
Building to a notorious climax, the film presents one of the frankest portrayals of male sexuality ever seen in American cinema.
