THE BIG BEND

In the vast and unknowable land of Texas, the Talbots and their two sons await the expected arrival of the Prices, old college friends of the Talbots. With both families of four, they explore the visually-striking desert, bathe in mud baths, and keep a wary eye out for snakes. With the backdrop of luminous mountains, both families reflect on their good lives and happy marriages. That is, until a child goes missing, a father confronts his mortality, and a wife decides to reexamine her marriage.

Their journey through the desert, as luxurious as it may seem, forces the families to confront their worst fears of unmendable marriages, the threat of death, and broken families. Directed by Brett Wagner, THE BIG BEND follows the survival of two families in a foreign and dangerous place, crafting a portrait of friendship, parenthood, and marriage.
