|Two years after the death of artist Mattie Wickhams teenage son, she realizes her marriage has not survived the crushing weight of grief. Searching for a new way to live her life, she follows her heart into the Appalachian foothills of Southeast Ohio where she joins a tight-knit group of nature-loving, historical reenactors. They fill their days with storytelling, music, and laughter while making a living re-creating eighteenth century accoutrements for the muzzleloading crowd. As Matties heart and spirit grow strong amid the towering hemlocks, sandstone cliffs, and misty ravines of Turtle Hills, however, her new friends face the crumbling of their handcrafted nirvana. One friend breaks the groups tacit covenant with Mother Earth, while another dies in a desperate act against a gas companys pipeline. After drifting apart through a season of anger and sorrow, the friends come together again in their need to forgive and heal, to maybe recapture the idealism that comes from living in the company of trees.
