Synopsis

David Lowery writes and directs this indie drama about an on-the-run convict's attempts to reach the child he has never seen. After a series of crimes leads them to take to the Texas hills, lovers Ruth Guthrie and Bob Muldoon (Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck) are finally cornered in a shack and involved in a fierce shootout with the police. In the ensuing battle Ruth critically injures a police officer, and Bob, unwilling to see his love sent to jail, admits to firing the shot, resulting in a sizable prison sentence. Years later, as he slowly acclimatises to life behind bars, the unexpected news that Ruth has borne him a daughter turns Bob's world upside down, resulting in him staging an audacious escape from prison and setting out across country to track down his family.
