Title: BACKCOUNTRY

Synopsis:
Monroe Marquis is a newly retired psychologist and single-mom. Her outwardly perfect life takes an unexpected turn when her son bails at the last minute from a planned Alaskan trip with his mom for an out-of-state job.

Barb, Monroe's longtime friend, and neighbor encourages her to go-for-it—travel alone. Determined to reclaim governance over her life, Monroe travels to Alaska and goes on a two-day hike on a popular trail in hopes of photographing the Northern Lights.

The backpacking trip goes horribly wrong when Monroe realizes she is lost. Near death, she is found by Jack who also took to the wilderness and had problems of his own—he's hunted by a trio of brothers who believe in "an eye for an eye".
