Wildlike interview with director Frank Hall Green

14-year-old Mackenzie is sent by her mom from her home in Seattle to spend the summer with her uncle in Juneau, Alaska. His kindness is almost overwhelming as he welcomes her into his Juneau, Alaska home but still a foreboding hangs over the home and their relationship. Mackenzie longs for her struggling absent mother. As her mom's phone calls become less frequent and her Uncle's care becomes anything but caring, she must flee. With no one to turn to, Mackenzie runs away after a hike around a local Juneau glacier. On her own and haunted by desperate phone calls and text messages from her Uncle, Mackenzie escapes into the town of Juneau which she soon discovers is not an easy place to escape being cut off from everywhere by the sea and mountains.

Seeking a way back to Seattle, Mackenzie encounters Rene Bartlett while hiding out at a motel. He is gruff and keeps to himself and wants nothing more than to be on his own. Learning that Bartlett is also from Seattle, Mackenzie secretly follows him in hopes of getting home to Washington. But Bartlett is not headed home. Kenzie tracks Bartlett for many hours and miles onto a ferryboat, up the coast, through Anchorage into the Alaska interior, finally arriving at Denali National Park.
