Fearing the unthinkable, a family flees into the wilderness. Fifty years later, park rangers Callie and David stumble across an unbelievable discovery.
While on a survey expedition, they encounter Vira, a woman born and raised in nearly complete isolation. Over the course of several days, they nurture a fragile trust as she shares her extraordinary story. Ultimately, they are faced with an agonizing choice: reveal her existence to a world that she has never known and cannot grasp, or help keep her hidden on a planet that is running out of space for secrets.
What happens when an impossible future collides with an imagined past? A spare and moving examination of a secluded life, and the ripples it makes, even from the depths of a shrinking wilderness.
nimbus’ next journey begins November 9th.
