In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a passionate father is so
devoted to teaching his six children how to live, be free, and survive
in the world that he has moved them deep into the forests of the
Pacific Northwest. He spends his days teaching them combat skills,
training them like professional athletes, homeschooling them in a
rigorous classical education, and introducing them to the beauty of
the natural world. However, when he is forced to leave their
self-created paradise and confront the real world, he begins a journey
that challenges his unorthodox parenting.
Burning Bodhi stars Kaley Cuoco, Sasha Pieterse, Cody Horn, Meghann Fahy, Landon Liboiron, Tatanka Means and Virginia Madsen.
The coming of age story written and directed by McDuffie follows Dylan – a young man, who upon learning via social media that one of his best friends from high school suddenly died heads back to his hometown in New Mexico, where he’s confronted by a complex grid of issues and regrets, past and present, involving his troublesome parents and heartbroken first love.
