Logline

Cartographer Will Shepard hits the road for his latest job: to create a new, more accurate satellite survey of Armenia. During his assignment, he forms a bond with an Armenian expatriate and art photographer.

Synopsis

The first American film produced in the country of Armenia, Braden King's HERE is a landscape-obsessed road movie that chronicles a brief but intense romantic relationship between an American satellite-mapping engineer (Ben Foster) and an expatriate Armenian photographer (Lubna Azabal), who impulsively decide to travel together into uncharted territory. Will's Shepard's solitary work - land-surveying satellite images to check for accuracy and resolve anomalies - is called “ground-truthing”. He’s been doing it on his own, for years, all over the world. Gadarine Najarian is a tough and intriguing art photographer on her first trip home in ages, passionately trying to figure out what kind of relationship - if any - she still has with her home country and culture. There is an almost instant, unconscious bond between these two lone travelers; they impulsively decide to continue together. The two become deeply connected as their sense of themselves - and their worlds - expands. As their trip comes to an end, each must deal with the conclusions to which their journey has led them – and each must decide where to go from HERE.
