Synopsis

Ben Cash, his wife Leslie and their six children live deep in the wilderness of Washington state. Isolated from society, Ben and Leslie devote their existence to raising their kids - educating them to think critically, training them to be physically fit and athletic, guiding them in the wild without technology and demonstrating the beauty of co-existing with nature. But when Leslie kills herself after a long battle with manic depression, Ben's in-laws bar him from attending her funeral, and Ben must leave their wild paradise, ultimately changing the course of their lives.
