Denis Côté’s wordless, often dreamlike film follows Wilcox, a young man roaming through the wilderness, quietly searching for something. Is it the need for somewhere to settle down that drives him on, or the wish to be on his own, away from civilisation and all its distractions? Using naturalistic field recordings and reflective cinematography, Côté’s film offers no answers and shares no opinions, presenting a view of the loner which is rarely seen in cinema today, free from all the aggressive survivalist trappings, and offering instead the journey of a man simply seeking peace.
