Evaders portrays the journey of a singular persona traversing the legendary Lister Route, a passage through the Pyrenees mountains across the French / Spanish border. The passage is surrounded by some of the most exquisitely beautiful and severe vistas accentuated with equally severe elemental conditions. The locals in the region refer to the relentless gusting winds as "Transmontana" and claim that it has the power to make travelers go mad.

The film is a dual channel work projected as two frames side by side. The two frames establish a dialogue defined by contrasting depictions of the traveler and his surroundings.
