Showing a rare understanding of the complexities and challenges of modern family life, Anna Kerrigan’s award-winning debut blends moving drama with classic frontier imagery in this revisionist western about a father and his transgender son escaping to the mountains of Montana.
Troy is on a camping trip with his transgender son Joe, an 11-year-old with a passion for cowboy yarns and the great outdoors. As they travel through the majestic beauty of the northern Rockies, television news reports emerge claiming that Joe is missing. As detective Faith investigates, we see a bigger picture involving Joe’s conservative mother Sally and her inability to let go of the little girl she loves.
