A SHORT FILM BY CHRISTIAN WALSH
A 1960s drama in beautiful black and white cinemascope, NORTH COUNTRY centers on a young woman found wandering the desert by an older man who takes her back to his isolated ranch. Over the days they wait for her parents to come pick her up, the uncertainty and barriers between them come down and they develop a complicated, platonic relationship that will impact their lives forever.
