Digital presentation - Walking an isolated line between solitude and redemption, Josh Lucas stars in his first leading dramatic role in HIDE AWAY.
Directed by Chris Eyre (Smoke Signals), HIDE AWAY follows the story of a successful businessman (Josh Lucas) attempting to resurrect his life. Entering an idyllic harbor as a broken and haunted man, he buys and boards the dilapidated sailboat, Hesperus. Disturbed at night by unsettling dreams of his family, the boat becomes a beacon of hope as he begins the challenge of bringing back the shine to the tarnished star.
Watching him from the harbor café are three equally mysterious residents: a waitress (Ayelet Zurer), always one puff away from her last cigarette and always a piercingly watchful eye on the Hesperus; the veteran mariner (James Cromwell), a salty, soulful man unable to reconcile his own past and traverses, who shares his openhearted wisdom that may be a salve for the younger man; and a newly single father (Jon Tenney), who's boisterous enthusiasm for a newfound freedom and escape from his responsibilities, is in contrast with the quiet and deliberate solitude the harbor's newest resident wants to protect.
As he descends deeper into the refuge of nature, isolation takes hold and he is forced to confront his troubled past.
