A cultural force for over 50 years, David Crosby faced an uncertain future after the 2015 dissolution of Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Racked with health issues and personal obstacles, he forged a new path at the age of 77. Seeking out younger musicians and recording a pair of critically-praised new albums, Crosby now sets out to make a mark in a world different from the generation he came to define in the 60s.

It’s a tough and tender portrait of the delicate balance between humankind and nature, a glimpse at a fast-disappearing way of life, and an unforgettable testament to one extraordinary woman’s resilience.
