Written for The Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society’s Summer Programme 2011.
Based on the historical events of 1845, director Kelly Reichard’s 2011 western drama follows the story of a small group of settlers travelling across the Oregon High Desert. When the supposedly two-week journey soon turns into much more, and with no end in sight, tensions high and water supply thin on the ground, how much longer can the group survive?
