Synopsis

The life of David Lamb is in shambles: shortly after his divorce, he also had to face his father’s death. When everything seems lost, he meets Tommie in a parking lot: an eleven-year-old girl, somewhat of an awkward loner. And everything changes: feeling the urge to finally do something positive, David sets off with the girl in a journey toward the Rocky Mountains. Surrounded by wilderness and breathtaking landscapes, the unlikely pair gets to know each other as their lives slowly open up to one another.

Director statement

“The story is frightening, yet beautifully poetic – it keeps on like a spiritual hymn, singing deep into the flesh, ripping at your heart, and somehow begging for consequences, goodness, and hope. Through it, perhaps we might begin to examine a small part of ourselves; our own sense of compassion and even responsibility toward those who live with the fear of becoming lost in the world.”
