Pounding drums in the woods, a missing father, and a glimpse into the world of peace and healing gatherings unite in Falling From The Moon.

Two young women face the harsh realities of growing up surrounded by direct action, marijuana culture, and baking bread in the woods.

25-year old Sapphire embarks on a quest to find her father, who vanished when she was ten and who, she believes, holds the key to her future. Her journey takes here to a peace and healing gathering where a community of counter-culture characters dispense advice and marijuana around late-night campfires. Along the way she hooks up with, Lauren, a pregnant environmental activist from California's North Coast trying to imagine a future that leaves her on the sidelines of tree sits and chaining herself to bulldozers, a Vietnam veteran with blood on his hands dedicated to helping others, and a teenage boy with mental health problems. Together, they create a future out of tragedy.
