Synopsis: For years Will and his teenage daughter, Tom, have lived off the grid, blissfully undetected by authorities in a vast nature reserve on the edge of Portland, Oregon. When a chance encounter blows their cover, they’re removed from their camp and put into the charge of social services. Struggling to adapt to their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a perilous journey back to the wilderness, where they are finally forced to confront conflicting desires—a longing for community versus a fierce need to live apart.
“Lyrical and realistic at the same time, anchored by a pair of unforgettable performances.” – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
“It is not an easy thing to place us into the lives of people we’ve never had real-life contact with, but this is the stuff that fuels Granik’s creativity” – Steve Prokopy, SlashFilm
