Visions of camping usually bring to mind peaceful relaxation, campfire s'mores and ghost stories. In Mother Nature, a father and son find much more than a quiet trip into the wilderness.
Escaping from a deteriorating marriage, a down-on-his-luck father and his meek son find themselves thrust into the company of a bizarre and violent cast of characters inhabiting the nearby campsites of a beautiful Washington rainforest. During their interactions (destined to go wrong from the start), the father quickly learns this trip will be more than he bargained for. Harassed and threatened, he and his son find survival is more than just learning to live: it's learning how to stay alive. This film is beautifully set, pleasing to the ear and gut wrenching to watch.
