Maine tells the story of Bluebird (Laia Costa), a married woman from Spain thruhiking the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. She set out on this soul journey chasing a rapture she has only found alone in the wild. However, she is sidetracked two months into her journey, when she garners the partnership of a younger American hiker, Lake (Thomas Mann), while passing through the undulating Virginia Highlands. The two develop a symbiotic relationship, within a reality driven by basic needs: food, water, and shelter. The wilderness becomes their playground: bathing in crystal clear waterfalls, climbing abandoned fire towers, seeking shelter from summer rain under rock overhangs…
Maine is a redefinition of individuality; the only favor we can do for ourselves is to feel as much as possible and keep moving.
