Claire (Betsy Brandt, "Breaking Bad") isn't the type to give up on anything. It's been three weeks since her husband, Paul (Chris Beetem), disappeared into the woods, and although the official police investigation has been closed and even her young son is beginning to grieve, Claire knows there has to be more to what's going on. Her fiercely independent search begins to uncover several troubling pieces of information concerning her husband and his sudden disappearance. When she eventually meets a mysterious and manipulative female graduate student who claims to have been working with Paul on a long-term project, Claire begins to question their entire relationship and the man she thought she knew, as well as her own personal identity. Directors Annie Howell and Lisa Robinson (Small, Beautifully Moving Parts) craft a haunting meditation that balances between missing-person thriller and psychological study, subtly exploring a drama of emotional crisis through its raw and authentic characters. Featuring a standout lead performance by Brandt, Claire in Motion is a genre-bending film about loss, discovering truths, and what it takes to keep moving forward.
