2019-11-14 19:30:002019-11-14 19:30:00America/ChicagoA Life of Days“Some stories are so remarkable we tell them again and again. Those are the things worth remembering.” Fearing the unthinkable, a family flees into the wilderness. Fifty years later, park rangers Callie and David stumble across an unbelievable discovery. While on a survey expedition, they encounter Vira, a woman born and raised in nearly complete isolation. Over the course of several days, they nurture a fragile trust as she shares her extraordinary story. Ultimately, they are faced with an agonizing choice: reveal her existence to a world that she has never known and cannot grasp, or help keep her hidden on a planet that is running out of space for secrets. What happens when an impossible future collides with an imagined past? A spare and moving examination of a secluded life, and the ripples it makes, even from the depths of a shrinking wilderness. nimbus’ next journey begins November 9th.

“Some stories are so remarkable we tell them again and again. Those are the things worth remembering.”

Fearing the unthinkable, a family flees into the wilderness. Fifty years later, park rangers Callie and David stumble across an unbelievable discovery.

While on a survey expedition, they encounter Vira, a woman born and raised in nearly complete isolation. Over the course of several days, they nurture a fragile trust as she shares her extraordinary story. Ultimately, they are faced with an agonizing choice: reveal her existence to a world that she has never known and cannot grasp, or help keep her hidden on a planet that is running out of space for secrets.

What happens when an impossible future collides with an imagined past? A spare and moving examination of a secluded life, and the ripples it makes, even from the depths of a shrinking wilderness.
