A touching drama about a photographer who is going blind and journeys to Yellowstone to take photos before he loses his sight.
**NOT AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM**
Photographer Owen Thomas (Ji Tanzer) has been diagnosed with LHON, Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy, an eye disease that has left him without sight in one eye and will soon leave him blind in both. Uncertain of how long his vision will last, his wife, Laura (Rebecca Sanborn), proposes to fulfill his lifelong dream of taking him to Yellowstone. The hastily planned trip presents obstacles that test and build their perseverance, love and trust in each other. The journey from the comforts of home to an unknown land takes Owen and Laura on a personal metamorphosis as they transition into profoundly changed lives. Determined to take photos of the park while coming to terms with his loss of sight, Owen discovers that he has a choice to see what he wants to see.
