Synopsis

Set in the 1860s, a backwoods fur trapper on a grueling winter journey is attacked while resting at his camp. Now injured and a long way from civilization, he is forced to make the life or death decision to trust the untrustworthy.

dIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

When planning VARLET with writer/co-producer John Budge, it was important to us that we be as accurate as possible to the aesthetics of the western United States of the 1860s. Towns were starting to pop up throughout the west and the fur trapping era was coming to a close. Finding period props and wardrobe was a joyous challenge as we really got to sink our teeth deep into this world. It delights me to share with audiences an accurate representation of a wandering fur trapper and an outlaw prospector of the time.
