Overview

In April 1992, a young man named Chris McCandless walked into the Alaska wilderness, where he survived for more than 100 days before perishing in an abandoned bus. For over twenty years his story has captivated millions, and yet only one person knew the truth behind his remarkable journey—until now.

Through a tumultuous childhood, the McCandless siblings clung to each other amidst a chaotic home life, forming a lifelong bond and an unbreakable trust. So when Chris forged an anonymous existence on the road, Carine understood what drove Chris away from all he had known. Having to face her own truth, Carine embarked on a unique journey finding strength in the love and connection she shared with her now absent brother.
