Matt Ross

A drama movie about family, love and staying true to oneself: Ben and his wife Leslie decided to raise their six children far away from the quite possibly corrupting influences of modern day society, so they moved to the Washington wilderness and built their own camp. There they spend their days training their bodies and educating their minds in near perfect harmony with nature – until one day a tragic phone call forces Ben to return to the family he thought he left behind.

This movie is suited for interdisciplinary teaching with regard to Social Studies.
