Summary
On a cruise to Central America, seventy-year-old Sten Stensen unflinchingly kills an armed robber menacing a busload of tourists. The reluctant hero is relieved to return home to California--only to find that his delusional son, Adam, has spiraled out of control. Adam has become involved with Sara, fifteen years his senior and a hardened member of a right-wing anarchist group that refuses to acknowledge the laws of the state. As Adam's mental state fractures, he becomes increasingly delusional until a breakdown leads him to shoot two people. On the run, he takes to the woods, spurring the biggest manhunt in California history. Inspired by a true story
