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.

Humanly portrayed the tough subject
28 September 2015 | by cheergalSee all my reviews

I chose to watch this movie because of good reviews. The fundamental part of the story is a difficult subject. There are wide ranges of sexual abuses existing in our society. The percentage of crimes being reported is shamefully low. This movie presented the truth of it.

In my view, the part how Bart (played by Greenwood) handled the situation after he found out the truth was crucial. It portrayed the deep concern of Bart's part about Mackenzie's well being humanly. He did not pass judgments on Mackenzie even she attempted to seduce him earlier. He somehow understood her behaviors. I would say this movie sieved the humanity through a series of unfortunate events. The director had keen eyes to present the positives through the negatives in life.

Human beings are resilient and uplifting sometimes even in worst circumstances. This movie undoubtedly depicted that at least. The director left the untold ending behind which I would say is better than telling it all. If you like to have reflections after, this will be the one.
