Veteran smokejumper Jack Elliot fells trees on a steep mountain slope high in the Montana wilderness when his phone rings. His estranged ex-wife can't pick up their teenage daughter from camp in Wyoming. Jack hasn't seen her in four years, ever since he lost his entire unit to a rogue wildfire. Over the next five days, we watch Jack and his daughter battle as they ride across the wild Montana landscape and sleep beneath her bounty of stars. Watching his baby grow into a woman, and seeing her hero shrink to a man, a battle that starts off face-to-face, slowly turns back-to-back.
