The award-winning director of 'My Life as a Dog', 'Chocolat' and 'Cider House Rules' brings to the screen another emotionally charged film that cuts deep to the core of the human experience.
On a remote ranch in Wyoming, Einar Gilkyson (Redford) spends his days fixing what's broke and bickering with his ranch-hand and best friend Mitch (Freeman).
Into this insular, lonely life comes a woman from his past - Einar's widowed daughter-in-law, Jean (Lopez). Einar blames her for the death of his son and hasn't even met the 11 year old girl Jean brings with her - his grand-daughter. But Jean hasn't come of her own volition - she's running away from something that will force this fractured family to confront long buried secrets and face the truth at last.
Through universal themes of frailty, resilience and redemption comes a story both epic and intimate, where the family is torn apart by tragedy and brought back together again
