About this project

In the 1930s, a teenager, Everett Ruess, renounced society and set out to live and travel in the wilderness. Following a few years of lone treks spanning hundreds of miles of exploration in the American Southwest, Everett Ruess vanished. The mystery of his disappearance has never been solved.

A strong image of this country develops along the traced path of Everett’s lifestyle: our people and our landscape, both of which are rapidly changing in today’s world. Through the lens of one young man’s resolute journey, this film provides broad perspective on the value of the wilds and the sometimes obscure, solitary efforts of humanity.
