After three tours in Iraq, Dave Cartwright is back in his rural Washington home, but feels disconnected from the community, frustrated and angry at society, and despondent about the recent loss of his wife to a car accident. His response is to retreat off-the-grid to North Cascades backcountry with his seven-year-old daughter, Bella, much to the concern of their extended family.
As Dave becomes more withdrawn, Bella retreats into a vision of the lives of a mother and son who lived on the same land at the end of the last Ice Age.
