Winston-Salem native Daniel Peddle’s unconventional road movie is actually set on a river, and is about an isolated young man who disappears into the woods on his eighteenth birthday to find himself. To his surprise, he meets a mysterious and beautiful hiker on the banks of the river near his home. She guides him on a journey of self-discovery that will help him overcome the tragic death of his mother and the shadow it has cast over his relationship with his detached father. A modern-day, Southern Gothic fable set in rural North Carolina, Moss reveals the struggles and beauty of lives deeply connected to nature.
