Synopsis

Lucien and Regina are foragers - they gather wild mushrooms and sell them to New York restaurants. Their lifestyle is simple, their income unstable. As Regina seeks more stability and Lucien wants to devote himself to full-time nomadic foraging, their individual desires put the marriage to a test. A food lovers’ film.

Director's Statement

We wanted to evolve the food movie genre beyond the romantic. There's been a major revolution in the last decade in terms of people's interest in food and where it comes from. We think that there's an audience for a film where the cooking is real.
Foraging isn't just some foodie trend. It's a way of observing the world and connecting to it in a very primal way. It's been a part of my life since I was old enough to walk in the woods, and I wanted to share that experience in an authentic way.
