This movie gives a glimpse into marginalized veterans suffering from PTSD. It appears that Will (Ben Foster) maintains control by living completely off the grid with his daughter, Tom (Thomasin McKenzie). The intricacies of day to day life in the woods require all his concentration. When they are “rescued” and brought to civilization, it appears that he has too much time on his hands and regresses. Tom is now old enough to start to grow into her own. This film gives insight into a community that has found a way to deal with these issues with dignity.
A father and his 13 year-old daughter are living in a paradisiacal existence in a vast urban park in Portland Oregon when a small mistake derails their lives forever.
