Victimized in foster care and then by his adoptive mother’s boyfriend, Seth decides to head out on his own. Brooke thinks she might be pregnant and, instead of dealing with her controlling mother, she runs. They meet in a wilderness park, where basic survival is a challenge. As they work together to find food, water, and shelter, they find the strength to take control of their own lives.
