Overview

What is the cost of believing in Bigfoot?

Charlie has risked his academic career—and his relationship with his son—to pursue the legendary creature known as Bigfoot or Sasquatch. Charlie's son Rick thinks Bigfoot is a hoax, but at the same time he wants to connect with his father—and with Katy, Charlie's new protégé. Katy believes in Bigfoot and desperately wants to see one face-to-face. Soon each of these people will experience something in the woods, something that irrevocably alters their mind-sets and their relationships with each other.
