“This is a project we all fell in love with and was voted best script of 2014 by our distribution teams on the ground,” president of Entertainment One Films International Harold van Lier said in a statement. “It is a very original story, both funny and deeply emotional and a wonderful role for Viggo. I don’t think we have read anything like it since Little Miss Sunshine, but this is altogether very different.”

SYNOPSIS:
In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a passionate father is so devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the Pacific Northwest. He spends his days teaching them combat skills, training them like professional athletes, homeschooling them in a rigorous classical education, and introducing them to the beauty of the natural world. However, when he is forced to leave their self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey that challenges his unorthodox parenting.
