After losing his wife to cancer, Steven takes his 2 children, Jimmy and Kate, to hike the Appalachian Trail to raise money for cancer awareness in her honor. After Steven severely hurts his leg, they are taken in by a matriarchal cult that live in the woods off the trail, whose true insidious intentions and nature are quickly revealed.
Led by the esoteric Breanna, the cult’s hierarchy boasts women in all positions of power, while their “men” are suppressed as bottomfeeding scum. They abandoned all civilization in the 1950’s amidst social unrest, residing in the lesser-traveled Quiet Zone. They also hide a secret revolving around worship of the Wendigo, an entity that possesses humans, turning them monstrous, invoking cannibalism as
they feed on the occasional lost hiker.
The film follows the story of Steven and his family’s struggling attempts to break from this clan, while offering social commentary on the evolution of common society.
