When a Korean American family relocates from California to a small town in Wyoming, they don’t expect the town residents to pose a bigger threat than the bison, moose, and snakes they encounter at every turn. But such is the chilling wilderness presented in A Great Divide, directed by Jean Shim. The Lee family are new to Wyoming, seeking a fresh start. Dad (Ken Jeong) thinks it’s best to try to fit in, while Mom (Jae Suh Park) refuses to dull her reactions to unwelcoming town residents. As for 15-year old Ben (Emerson Min), he just misses his best friend Ellie (Miya Cech). Together, the family must navigate their outsider status and confrontations with a tight-knit community resistant to change.
