Liney (Tommie-Amber Pirie) is struggling to get her life moving without a roadmap. After a summer spent tree planting, she and her boyfriend Dan are prepared to move on to a winter spent on a fishing boat in Alaska. But after losing all their money in a shady fashion, their life of adventure needs funding.

Liney turns to her family for help, but as locked doors from her past begin to reopen, she spirals back into the world of her estranged mother, distant father and an older brother that balances the line between judgment and concern. As she finds herself on the receiving end of a world’s worth of unsolicited advice, Liney shows that you can never wholly exorcise yourself from your family, no matter how hard you try.

Shot in Ontario and British Columbia, Don’t Get Killed in Alaska is the first full-length feature from Toronto-based filmmaker Bill Taylor.
