About the film: 

Premiered at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. Set against the sweeping landscapes of the American West, two estranged siblings return home to the sprawling ranch they once knew and loved and struggle to reconnect as they confront a deep and bitter family legacy. The story unfolds at a measured pace, alert to every unspoken feeling of the mostly taciturn characters, with a folky score and and strikingly atmospheric visuals.

“Evokes a grandiose style of American frontier filmmaking, somewhere between John Ford and Kelly Reichardt. See it on the largest screen you can find.”

—Chandler Levack for The Globe and Mail
