Synopsis:

Starring Mia Wasikowska (JANE EYRE, STOKER) and Adam Driver (HBO’S GIRLS, FRANCES HA, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS), directed by John Curran (THE PAINTED VEIL, WE DON’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE) and from the Oscar® winning producers of THE KING’S SPEECH, TRACKS is based on the inspirational and iconic true story of Robyn Davidson (Wasikowska). Robyn’s phenomenal solo trek from Alice Springs to Uluru and on to the Indian Ocean saw her traverse nearly 2,000 miles of spectacular yet unforgiving Australian desert accompanied only by her loyal dog and four unpredictable camels.

 

Charismatic young New Yorker and National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Driver) travelled from the other end of the earth to capture, at intervals, this epic and remarkable journey into one of the world's last great wildernesses. Robyn reluctantly agreed to a visiting photographer in return for much needed trip funding and could only see Rick’s visits as intruding on her solitude and compromising everything the journey meant to her. However, this uneasy relationship between two very different people would slowly develop into an unlikely and enduring friendship.

 

Set against one of the wildest, most dangerous and most breathtaking backdrops on the planet, this unprecedented journey pushed Robyn to her physical and emotional limits and taught her that sometimes we have to detach from the world to feel connected to it. In witnessing this extraordinary journey, we realize that the impossible is within reach of us all.
