UK Premiere

Mackenzie, a troubled but daring teenager, is sent to live with her uncle in Juneau, Alaska. She longs for her struggling, absent mother, but as her mum’s phone calls become less frequent and her uncle’s care is not what it seems, she is forced to run. Her only thoughts are to escape her uncle’s grasp and contact her mother somehow, but as she plunges deeper into the Alaskan interior she is suddenly helplessly alone. Lost and with no one else to turn to, she shadows a loner backpacker, Bartlett, an unlikely father figure with scars of his own. He proves to be her only lifeline as they cross the wilderness and discover sanctuary in the last frontier. "A genre-defying film with an unmistakable indie spirit, WILDLIKE, is a wonderful viewing experience that is both breathtaking to look at and refreshingly optimistic." American Literary Magazine.
