Medical tests reveal Wood has diabetes, but he convinces Jackson that the doctors have misdiagnosed his condition. With Jackson’s help, Wood runs away from the hospital and hides in a remote forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Soon his journey becomes far more perilous than he could have foreseen. He finds himself not only battling the effects of diabetes, but also the forces of the wilderness in a struggle that may cost him his life!
