Circuit uses the mechanical structures of an old car to tell a cyclical murder story. A woman wakes up in the trunk of a broken down convertible that has been abandoned on a service road in rural Oregon. In her hand is a crumpled diagram, which she must use in order to repair the car and return to her house. Circuit follows her attempt to reach home and safety.
