Will and Eden were once married, but a tragedy drove them apart two years ago and they haven’t seen each other since. Now, Eden (Tammy Blanchard) and her new partner David (Michiel Huisman) have invited Will (Logan Marshall-Green) and his new partner over for dinner at their house, where Will and Eden used to live, along with about 8 other friends. It’s a nice idea to have the old gang together again, even if there is likely to be some old pain and tension still in the air.
Cheryl strayed from the path after her mother’s death and to find her way again she decides to hike 1100 miles to redemption along the Pacific Crest Trail.
It really is a roadtrip movie – well a hiking journey movie – and Cheryl’s experiences along the way are small, focusing on the here and now – be it meeting men she is not sure she can trust, various animals, or kind strangers. The storytelling is interspersed with flashbacks allowing us to learn a bit more about who she is and why she is on this hike.
