In this short from Wild Confluence Films, six friends float through Montana’s Bob Marshall wilderness in packrafts. During their river trip on the South Fork of the Flathead River, they “enjoy some of finest fly fishing in the lower 48, endless solitude and the rhythm of this pristine river.” But just as this idyllic trip is ending, a nearby forest fire forces them to reroute the final leg and come together as a group.
