Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A teenage girl who's struggling with her sense of self befriends an enigmatic Native American man who helps her to move beyond a family tragedy and embrace her true identity in this coming-of-age drama based on a story by Judy Blume (who collaborated on the screenplay with her son, director Lawrence Blume). Feeling lost in the world following the death of her father, 17-year-old Davey (Willa Holland) subsequently finds herself living in Los Alamos, NM, with her Aunt Bitsy (Cynthia Stevenson). Socially awkward and unable to connect with her peers, Davey begins exploring the canyons around her home and meets Wolf (Tatanka Means). Wolf is a kind soul who can recognize the pain in Davey's eyes, and his compassion and wisdom helps to draw out the strength hidden deep inside the grieving girl. The more Davey learns about life, love, and loss, the more she begins to realize just how valuable they are in a world where everything is temporary.
