A FILM BY CHRISTOPHER MUNCH
NON-THEATRICAL: AVAILABLE FOR TV, VOD & FILM FESTIVALS ONLY
After swearing off relationships, a fiercely individualistic artist named Sarah (Lily Rabe, daughter of the late Jill Clayburgh) takes to the woods with the dual goals of surveying a stream and finding herself. As she ventures deeper into the wilds of southwestern Oregon, a series of strange incidents lead her to suspect that she isn’t alone, after all.
Before long, Sarah’s mysterious neighbour reveals himself to be none other than Sasquatch himself, whose gruff exterior hides a mighty intellect and the soul of a poet. As their metaphysical, telepathic communication deepens, the encroaching threat of deforestation — as well as the attentions of a handsome fellow camper with his own hidden motives — lead Sarah to decide where her true allegiances lie.
One of the strangest and gentlest Bigfoot movies ever made, idiosyncratic filmmaker Christopher Munch (The Hours and Times, The Sleepy Time Gal) has crafted a witty, lyrical, and eco-minded fable about trust, inner strength, and The Great Wide Open.
