As documentarian Nanfu Wang (Hooligan Sparrow, MFF2016) travels across the United States, she comes across a genuinely romantic spirit in Dylan, a young drifter whose homelessness is a choice to forgo the comforts of his previous life to instead pursue "true freedom." Initially inspired by Dylan's rugged outlook, Nanfu comes to see cracks behind his vagabond facade, visiting his family and discovering that the reasons behind his societal retreat extend beyond mere platitudes in this fascinating, multifaceted look at the limits of freedom.
