In 2015, filmmaker Jeremy Prusso took his family on a trip to Utah's Maple Canyon. The journey spawned his latest film, Maple Canyon, which touches on the importance of spending time outside with family. “You just want them to have what you have, to see what you see, and to know why you are willing to work so hard just to get out the door,” Prusso says in the video.
