About the Film

After years of reckless behavior, a heroin addiction and the destruction of her marriage, Cheryl Strayed made a rash decision. Haunted by memories of her mother Bobbi (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and with absolutely no experience, she set out to hike more than 1000 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail all on her own. WILD powerfully reveals her terrors and pleasures, as she forges ahead on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
