Big Sky Grant recipient ‘Willow Creek Road’ explores the internal world of a lonely Montana ranch hand, Ruth. When Ruth is unexpectedly drawn into the lives of two children, she slowly assumes the role of a Mother, awakening a sense of play, femininity, protection and connection. Ruth must face reality, and ultimately herself, when the kids’ mother returns home.
Set within the epic landscape of Montana’s mountains, plains and vast stretches of rural dirt road — Ruth’s relationship to the land mirrors her emotional arc throughout the course of the film.
