Essentials of Survival – Short Film from Candace Duffy Jones on Vimeo.
Emily is tired of being a scout, nature survival is overrated in her mind. When her family goes on an overnight hike, she gets lost in the forest and must survive the night. Using her scouting skills, she does well and can navigate the forest through a cold night, a fall in a stream, injury, and more. However, when the weather turns bad and there is no sign of being found she starts to give up hope.
