The plot veers all over the place with continuous flashbacks that presented her 'former' life where we see her interact with her family, friends and strangers. Along with her hiking adventure where nothing really happens, pretty much long stretches of rough, rustic landscape. Honestly, I was expecting her to be eaten alive by some wildlife or worst be killed by other hikers, yes it was my morbid mind taking over the plot. I guess she was lucky, the PCT is fairly safe for first time hikers.
I can't help but compare it with another film about self-discovery, "Into the Wild" which was modest in its interpretation yet had more depth in depicting the tragic story of another hiker.
