Set in the backwoods of Vermont, Major Arcana follows an itinerant carpenter’s attempt to end a legacy of alcoholism and poverty by building a log cabin by hand. His plans are complicated when he reunites with Sierra, a woman with whom he shares a troubled past, and he must reconcile his old life with his new one. A vivid depiction of life in early sobriety, it’s a universal story resonant to these uncertain times.
