This film is an intimate portrait of Mark Brookmire (August 2, 1951 - July 24, 2011)
He has lived a solitary life for the last 20 years in a cabin in the woods of Western New York.
After being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and given three months to live, his daughter immediately sought to capture the heart of her father as a poet, falconer and free-spirit in this deeply personal documentary.
Produced from February until May 2011.
