- Summaries (2)
Mountain Men is a comedy/drama that follows two estranged brothers, Toph and Cooper, as they journey to a remote family cabin in the mountains to evict a squatter. Buried resentment and bruised egos soon derail the plan and when the smoke clears they've destroyed their car and burned down the cabin, leaving them stranded in the cold Rocky Mountain winter. With their very survival at stake, they must learn to work together as brothers to get back to civilization.
Of the two young adult Pollard brothers of small town Revelstoke, British Columbia, younger Cooper is the successful one, having moved from big city job to big city job, currently residing in New York City. Conversely, older Topher is outwardly the failure who nonetheless admires his younger brother. Having never left Revelstoke, Toph earns what little money he has primarily by selling weed. He has just found out his girlfriend Leah is pregnant, he somewhat assuming that she will have an abortion in he not being emotionally or financially ready to be a responsible adult. On Toph and their mother Marion having legally declared Toph and Coop's missing survivalist father dead, Coop, in the middle of winter, returns to Revelstoke for the first time in years for Marion's wedding. Coop plans on making this trip an in and out affair, he having no desire to spend any time in Revelstoke or with his family, especially as he has unmentioned plans immediately following the weekend. About the Pollard men in general, Coop believes they are all screwed-up. To get out of doing something else, Coop agrees to accompany Toph to the family's isolated mountain cabin - where their father spent most of his time - as Toph has heard reports of a squatter living there. Out of circumstance, by the time they are ready to head back to town the next morning, they have no vehicle or shelter, and with no one looking for them, they have to hike down the mountain, which neither of them has any experience doing in the middle of winter. They decide instead of the longer route along the logging road to the main road, they will take what they believe is the shortcut through the woods. In their extended time together, Toph and Coop will have time to get into the open some of the familial issues that are bubbling just below the surface. That, in addition to whether they are able to make it back to civilization alive, they may also be able to test Coop's assertion about the screwed-up Pollard men.
