The story of Emily Tetherow (Michelle Williams), a young pioneer who sets out with her husband and other families in 1845 along the infamous Oregon trail.
Led by frontier guide Stephen Meek (Bruce Greenwood), the families are soon lost and as food and water runs low, they start to mistrust each other and their guide.
Set against an inhospitable landscape, Meek's Cutoff is a kind of ‘anti-western’, an enigmatic and desolately beautiful pioneer fable.
