story

In an attempt to escape his former life Sam, a 30-year-old New Yorker, decides to revisit his old parent’s house in Montana, long time abandoned ever since their deaths when he was a young boy.

When arriving at the house he notices a fire watch tower across the forest that wasn’t there during his childhood years at the house. Curious by the new structure he decides to venture into the forest and find the origin of this tower. There he stumbles upon the eerie and strange entrance of a National Park, the Crow park. In a dream-like state he approaches the entrance having an uncanny feeling that he has been here before, what he doesn’t know is that this place only appears to those in need of guidance and that it is a portal to the realm of spirit animals.

Here he meets Papa Coyote the keeper of this park and with his help, Sam entails a journey of hope, closure, and liberation as he creates connections with himself, spirits and his own soul.
