He prepared them for everything except the outside world.
Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest lives devoted dad Ben (Viggo Mortensen) and his six kids. Ben has dedicated his life to raising extraordinary children with a rigorous physical and intellectual education, and a primal connection to the natural world. When a tragedy strikes, the family is forced to leave. Suddenly the children must face the excitement and the perils of an unfamiliar outside world while Ben is compelled to reexamine his idea of what it means to be a parent.
