In a land mysterious and serene, a gem with a history unknown to most, lies the tale of two brothers as they try to comprehend their current situation amidst a troubling war that has been thrust upon them — the Seminole Wars in 1830. Can Big Brother keep Little Brother from the dark experience they encountered? Or can they both become one and move toward a place of understanding?

With sweeping shots of the Everglades, Montana Cypress captures the timelessness of this wonderland, a space bound to change forever after what could be the last sunset these two brothers will get to witness.
