Danny Glover stars as Jake Neeley, a Vietnam veteran haunted by memories of lives lost under his command, who has lived in self-imposed exile in the rain forest of the Pacific Northwest for more than thirty years. When a former member of his platoon (David Strathairn) mysteriously appears at his remote cabin with his nine-year-old daughter, Jake is forced to face long buried feelings, and begins an unexpected journey to healing.

Linda Hamilton plays a feisty, widowed storekeeper who is Jake's sole contact with the outside world. Ron Perlman portrays Red, a badly scarred, deranged "bush vet" the little girl attempts to befriend.

The score uses orchestra in combination with a variety of stringed folk instruments (dulcimer, fiddle, mandola, psalter) and exotic winds to paint an inner landscape as woody and isolated as the great Northwest forest that Jake has escaped to. A central motif is Red's theme, which serves as the sad, troubled core of the score and represents all that Jake must finally release. There are also lighter moments as Jake begins to bond with the young girl and find his way back into the world.
