In a Northern California forest that seems to keep shape-shifting around them, two sisters go looking for their father who has gotten lost on a routine mushroom-hunting expedition.  After encountering a mysterious young boy who bears a striking resemblance to their absent brother, the family searches for the road back, tackling limited visibility and the interfamilial politics of race and gender, pushed to extremes.
