Directed by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary

Hanna, a brutally blunt international journalist, is struggling to come to terms with her husband’s violent death. After accepting a seemingly tame assignment, she becomes increasingly obsessed with uncovering the history of another Hannah: the infamous Hannah Dustin who was kidnapped by a Native American raiding party in 1697. Soon the stories of the two Hanna(h)s begin to merge into a single portrait of a smart woman, torn from the only world she knows, who crosses the line between civilization and her own wilderness.
