Set against the dawn of the Atomic Age in 1950s Las Vegas, DESERT BLOOM is a powerful human drama, painting an unforgettable portrait of a family struggling to unite in an increasingly frightening world. Academy Award(r)- winner JON VOIGHT (Best Actor in a Leading Role, Coming Home, 1978) is Jack Chismore, a volatile war veteran, fighting to overcome his personal demons while holding his family together. JOBETH WILLIAMS (Poltergeist) is his wife Lily, torn between the needs of her family and a secret vice that threatens the very foundation of her marriage. ANNABETH GISH (TV's "X Files") is Rose, a delicate girl on the threshold of adolescence, struggling to understand the adults surrounding her. Into this turbulent household comes Lily's sister Starr (ELLEN BARKIN, Someone Like You), a sexydivorcée who becomes the unwitting catalyst in an explosive chain reaction that rocks the Chismore family as surely - and irrevocably - as the A-bomb testing in the nearby desert.
