The Hunter's Moon
Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
Twelve-year-old hunter Nannette Carrier runs away from home to fulfill an unfinished task for her recently deceased father. She is soon joined by an unexpected traveling companion, and as they trek across central Kentucky, one trial after another complicates their trip. Meanwhile, recovering alcoholic and perpetual disappointment Calum Goff attempts to redeem himself by finding Nannette and proving to Colonel David Slone that he is qualified to become a game warden. The Colonel has problems of his own, as political pressure builds on him to find the runaway and her companion before tragedy strikes. Against his better judgement, the Colonel must accept help from Calum, who in turn must accept help from his grandafther’s troubled immigrant horse farm worker, Jorge. Each of the four characters confronts his or her own personal demons as they struggle to find their place within the circle of life from which no one ultimately can escape.
