Overview

It is summer and the Canadian Rockies are on fire.

Fleeing the fallout of a relationship gone wrong, Alan West returns to his hometown. There, his grandfather, Cecil, suffers a heart attack and gives him one last task: he must track down the father he's never known, so that Cecil can make his peace.

And so Alan begins his search for the elusive Jack West, a man who skipped town decades earlier. The quest will lead him to Archer, an old American soldier who went AWOL into Canada at the apex of the Vietnam War. Together, at the behest of a dying man, they set off on a reckless journey through the burning mountains.

What they find will change their lives forever.
