Storyline

Mackenzie, a troubled but daring teenage girl, is sent by her struggling mother to live with her uncle in Juneau, Alaska. Although Uncle seems like a supportive caretaker and friend, the relationship turns and Mackenzie is forced to run. Trying to make her way back to Seattle alone to find her absent mother, Mackenzie only winds up deeper in the Alaskan interior. Lost and with no one else to turn to, she shadows a loner backpacker, Bartlett, an unlikely father figure with scars of his own. Together, they cross the wilderness and discover sanctuary in the last frontier. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Bartlett: We eat a hundred yards from the tent. We don't make fires, I cook on the stove, and there are no marshmallows. Don't spill food on youself, don't break any branches, don't step on any flowers. Just leave everything the way you found it. This is bear spray. Hold on to it. Never approach and bear, or a moose, or whatever. Don't approach them. If a bear charges you then...
Mackenzie: I know what I'm doing.
Bartlett: You have no idea. But whatever you do, don't run. - Do not run. - Don't run.
Mackenzie: "Don't run." got it.

Sensitive and effective
4 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It would be a mistake to say that this film could've worked without the strong, effective performances by the two main characters. They do a great job of carrying the film, and probably make it better than it has any right to be. Don't get me wrong, that's not to say that the film isn't good. It is, in fact, but I do wish the screenplay had been refined just a little bit more in order to really have the full effect of what the film's ambition is aiming for. As it is, it still gets its point across pretty well, and it definitely deserves a wider audience than the one it has gotten. Definitely recommended for all people interested in a sensitive, subtle film.
