Storyline

Stressed out law student Zach McAllister takes a five day bicycle trip through the peaceful autumn woods of Western Maryland with his wife, his lover, and his lover's boyfriend. Not exactly the getaway vacation he planned. Along the way, they encounter everything you'd expect on a camping trip - rain, infidelity, and the realization that a truly healthy relationship is just about impossible to find.

An Indie Film about the Struggles of Relationships
25 November 2015 | by mld-39409See all my reviews

Forest for the Trees is an American independent film that looks at struggles every twenty-something eventually faces. From marriage and infidelity to raising children, the film examines some of life's most challenging moments in a very upfront manner. While the beginning of the film drags on for a little bit, once the group of old friends begins their camping trip, the drama escalates and you find yourself wondering if any of these friendships will survive. The film leaves you reevaluating your outlook on relationships, whether they are with your spouse or friends, and ends with the idea that these people learned something about themselves that they might not have ever realized. All in all, it is definitely worth watching!
