Five women set out on an eight-day, 65-mile packrafting journey deep in the wilderness of Montana. Stunning scenery, challenging terrain, heavy packs, and extreme remoteness bring the group to their physical edge. A trip inspired by self-growth, adventure, and world-class Westslope cutthroat trout fishing, quickly evolves into a deeper exploration of how we are on the edge of a new climate era, leading them to question what the future of conservation and ethical wilderness recreation will look like in a rapidly changing climate.
