It’s been a year since teenaged Margo (Kenadi DelaCerna) heard from her mother. Since then, she’s lived with her father in rural Michigan, learning to survive off the land and shoot like a pro. When a traumatic incident shatters life as she knows it, Margo sets off on an epic journey down the Stark River, armed with her rifle and her mother’s last known address. Based on the novel by Bonnie Jo Campbell, this gothic, waterborne road movie was hailed by critic Richard Roeper as “a living prose poem filled with beautifully framed images and featuring some of the strongest writing and acting you’ll find in any movie this year.”
