Ben Cash raises his six children off the grid in the forests of the Pacific Northwest but leaves his family's isolation to attend his wife's funeral in New Mexico after she kills herself in an institution.
In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, Ben Cash raises his six children off the grid by himself after his wife was hospitalized for bipolar disorder. When Ben receives notice that his wife has killed herself, he takes his children on a road trip to New Mexico to attend their mother's funeral, despite warnings that his father-in-law will have him arrested if he disrupts the ceremony.
Events surrounding the funeral, including one of his children being severely injured, one of them wishing to go to college, and one of them siding with his father-in-law, force Ben to reevaluate his choices regarding his children's upbringing and education.
