In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.

Ben and his wife abandoned modern life to bring up their family in an idyllic retreat in the woods. But, when the family leave the safety and familiarity of their home and cross the country to attend a funeral, Ben’s in-laws aren’t happy to see him and it’s not long before they threaten their unconventional way of life.

An original and compelling character drama, starring Viggo Mortensen, George MacKay and Frank Langella.
