"Years after losing their son in a horseback riding accident, George and Margaret Blackledge have still not come to terms with his death. Their daughter-in-law has remarried and cut off all contact with the Blackledges, taking their grandson to Montana. Though Margaret wants to rescue the boy, her efforts are challenged by her reluctant husband and the boy's troublemaking stepfamily. Set in 1951 North Dakota, Let Him Go is a character-driven, heart-wrenching tale of a woman whose decision to save her family brings violence into their lives."
