Endless Love follows Anderson’s mother to New Zealand, where she was filming a horror movie, and West Virginia, where she had a log cabin built on land inherited from her mother and father. These scenes of ostensible documentary are interrupted by clips from a 1979 Western that Anderson's mother starred in, as well as stock footage. Throughout the video, Anderson's mother reads a monologue of musings compiled by the artist, which include conversations with taxi drivers, as well as fragments from the play “A Long Day's Journey Into Night” by Eugene O'Neill – chosen almost at random as an example of 20th century writing that confuses familiar emotional colloquialisms with deep meaning.
