A chronicle of one woman's one thousand one hundred mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent personal tragedy.
Cheryl (Reese Witherspoon) sings a song during the movie, "How's The World Treating You?", originally sung by Elvis Presley. This song appeared in Big Little Lies (2017), sung by Witherspoon's character's ex-husband.
What if I was never redeemed?
Cheryl: What if I already was?
Cheryl is seen pumping water through a First Need water filter. The water in the bottle is hopelessly muddy and dirty, and she adds iodine to purify the water to make it drinkable. The filter shown will actually produce clean, clear and immediately-drinkable water, free of bacteria and protozoa, without any need for further sterilization, even from a very muddy source. It is good product placement, but a poor plot angle for the manufacturer.
There are photos of the real Cheryl Strayed on her actual walk shown during the credits.
