Film Synopsis

Akuna tells the story of Will Robinson, an Iraqi war veteran who after being discharged from service with severe injuries and PTSD, took up hiking on the Pacific Coast Trail in 2016. Once he started walking, Robinson didn’t want to stop, conquering the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail and setting his sights on the Continental Divide trail which spans 3,100 miles between Mexico and Canada. This film aims to give audiences an insight into Will’s healing process by providing glimpses into his PTSD, the traumatic memories associated war, and the steps he’s taking to heal.
