Focus Years: | Country: United States
In the 1930s, a teenager named Everett Ruess renounced society and set out to live and travel in the wilderness. After a few years of lone treks spanning hundreds of miles of exploration in the American Southwest, Everett vanished. The mystery of his disappearance has never been solved. A strong image of this country develops along the traced path of Everettâ€™s lifestyle: our people and our landscape, both of which are rapidly changing in todayâ€™s world. Through the lens of one young manâ€™s resolute journey, this film provides a broad perspective on the value of the wilds and the sometimes obscure, solitary efforts of humanity.
