'Mum and Josh head out on a five-day hike in the scenic Tasmanian wilderness. There are some funny times and some revealing times. Mum cries herself to sleep a lot and gets trapped in a waterhole by a snake. They get stoned, and they finally talk about Mum's suicide attempts. They walk a really long way.'
