“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.” —Henry David Thoreau, Walden From writer/director Shane Carruth (Primer) comes this modern-day fable exploring the connection between nature and the human psyche and drawing on American philosopher Walden’s Life in the Woods. A man and woman are strangely drawn together having unwittingly ingested a mind-altering grub. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of their wrecked lives.
