A million options are suffocating Mia. She’s a young adult trying to escape that pressure by going into the unpredictable trails of the forest.
By testing her own limits she hopes to find a clear answer for her own path. That’s when a mysterious figure appears, and she sees in him the possible guide she’s been looking for.
