A lot of the movies that I encourage Jenny to watch with me aren’t much good.
This wasn’t one of those.
This was one of the good ones.
A father, dealing with PTSD, lives out in the forest with his daughter.
When the authorities discover them living on public land, they are placed in living situations that lack the freedom they pursued in the woods.
The daughter responds positively to a “normal” lifestyle….the father needs to get back to the forest.
I guess that’s sort of a spoiler, isn’t it?
This was such a good and….”real”….movie.
I highly recommend this one.
