SYNOPSIS

Married couple Ben and Leslie Cash are two anarchist activists who don’t believe in the capitalistic american lifestyle so they decide to live their lives in the wilderness that surrounds Washington. Ben and Leslie raise their six kids with unconventional principles, teaching them to develop a strong critical mind towards their reality, one which they tend to distrust. Their lives are shaken by Leslie’s sudden suicide caused by an untreated bipolar disorder because she refused official medicine. When grandpa Jack decides to have a traditional funeral, Ben gets angry and threatens him but at the same time he hopes that the funeral can become the right occasion to show his kids the chaos of a big city life. He couldn’t predict though that the kids would start to doubt their teachings and so he is forced to rethink his ideas on life and the sense of freedom.
