Two people ride horses through the wilderness of Montana. A father and his son whom he loves more than anything and wants to allow him to live as he wishes. As Joe; as a boy. And for his son’s happiness, Troy is determined to do anything - kidnap him from his mother, swim across swollen rivers, hunt wild animals, and flee from the police who are after him. An original modern American western about trans* adolescence, parental love and the Wild West heroes that reside within each of us.
