Based on the memoir of the same name by Cheryl Strayed, the story follows a woman who decides to take a three month trek through the Pacific Crest Trail, attempting to leave her troubled past and drug addiction behind. During the long walk, she finds time to reflect on her mistakes and consider where she is going in the future as she looks for inner peace.
This first scene finds a dirty Reese Witherspoon having to bypass part of the trail due to some unexpected weather. She is confronted by a writer for the Hobo times who is clearly locked into his own agenda. No matter how she explains it, Cheryl is unable to convince the man that she is not a homeless vagrant.
