The film follows a boy named Gunner (Chavis), who sets out on a quest to save his ill mother (Dawson) by searching for a mythic figure called the Water Man that is said to possess the secret to immortality. After enlisting the help of a mysterious local girl, Jo (Miller), they journey together into the remote Wild Horse forest. However, the deeper they venture, the stranger and more dangerous the forest becomes. Their only hope for rescue is Gunner’s father (Oyelowo), who will stop at nothing to find them and in the process will discover who his son really is.

It’s a personal project for Oyelowo and he wound up directing it because these types of films weren’t being made anymore.
“Why were there no more E.T.s and The Goonies, Stand By Me, Gremlins, Willow, and The Neverending Story? You know, the truth is we do have them, but they’re only being made by Pixar,” Oyelowo told ComingSoon. “You know, I would say Up and The Incredibles and now Soul, you know, there are some that have a little bit of that tone whereby you have both magic and meaning, reality and fantasy. You have heavier themes, but they can somehow be palatable to young kids and then relatable to grownups as well. But we just weren’t making them in a way that I sort of had enough of them to show my kids and not have to go back to the 80s to kind of show my kids these kinds of movies.
“Initially, I pursued this project for those reasons, and primarily as a producer and as an actor. It wasn’t until we lost our director a few years into the development of the project that the writer turned to me and said, ‘David, I think you should be the one to direct it.’ I was just so passionate about it and seeing some of this nature out in the world that I decided to jump in the director’s seat.”
