This deliverance to redemption has inspired motion pictures since the time we can remember. Losing ourselves in the lap of mother nature and the warmth of solitude can be an orgasmic and life-changing experience. Over the years, the genre has gained popularity. The films have inspired youths and teens to embark on journeys of self-discovery and an aberration from banality.
