- Synopsis / Plot
- Freshly graduated from college and with a promising future ahead, 22-year-old Christopher McCandless chose instead to walk out of his privileged life and into the wild in search of adventure. Christopher abandoned his possessions, gave his $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an enduring symbol for countless people. Was Christopher a heroic adventurer or a naïve idealist, a rebellious 1990s Thoreau or another lost American son, a fearless risk-taker or a tragic figure who wrestled with the precarious balance between man and nature? Based on a true story and the bestselling book by Jon Krakauer.
