DVD Release: June 1, 2015
Lost Wilderness


Two families dealing with death and divorce are pressured to bond together during an outdoor vacation. The four would-be siblings wander out of bounds on their ATVs in search of an ancient relic. They soon find themselves lost in the woods and ill equipped to deal not only with the rugged terrain but the emotional pain they have brought with them. The epic and stunning locations serve as a metaphor for the seductive beauty of the relationships, together with the perils and challenges that can be found within them. This is a story of hope and overcoming, full of humor and fun. It is a coming-of-age tale not only for kids but for parents as well.

Dove Review

It is never easy when two families try to merge into one. This film is about a mom and her boys who, with her fiancée and his two children, go on a camping trip. Her boys have been there before with their father, but now their parents are divorced. The other family are city folks and unsure of the wilderness. Phil, the youngest boy, has many allergies.

While trying hard to blend the families, the older boys take them on an excursion that none of them will forget. Along the way all of them discover things they need to face and resolve such as forgiveness, the past, and becoming a family that helps one another. We are pleased to award this compelling drama our Dove Seal for ages 12 and over.
