Plot Summary

With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthen, and ultimately heals her. Written by Spencer Higham

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The young Cheryl is portrayed by Cheryl Strayed's daughter Bobbi Strayed Lindstrom. See more »
Goofs Cheryl is seen pumping water through a First Need water filter. The water in the bottle is hopelessly muddy and dirty, and she adds iodine to purify the water to make it drinkable. The filter shown will actually produce clean, clear and immediately-drinkable water, free of bacteria and protozoa, without any need for further sterilization, even from a very muddy source. It is good product placement, but a poor plot angle for the manufacturer. See more »

Quotes Stacey: You get lonely?
Cheryl: Honestly? I'm lonelier in my real life than I am out here. I miss my friends, of course, but it's not as if I have anybody waiting for me at home. How about you?
[pause]
Cheryl: Why are you here?
Stacey: I don't know. I just need to find something in myself, you know? I think the trail was good for that. I mean, look.
[They look up at the sunset]
Stacey: This has the power to fill you up again, if you'll let it.
Cheryl: My mother used to say something that drove me nuts. There is a sunrise and a sunset every day and you can choose to be there for it. You can put yourself in the way of beauty.
Stacey: My kind of woman.
