Into the Forest follows two young sisters struggling to make sense of their world when their near-future society collapses. In their isolation, they find that the basic necessities of survival must be cherished, and that they must find ways to sustain their emotional lives through individual sources of inspiration. Hegland's exploration of the sisters' relationship as they go deeper into the forest reveals the full dimension of their bond, and what it means to be human, female, and alive in this new world.
