Jeliza-Rose (Jodelle Ferland) is a young child in a very unusual situation - both her parents are drug addicts. When her mother dies, she embarks on a strange journey with her father, Noah (Jeff Bridges), a rock 'n' roll musician well past his time.

The film drifts between reality and fantasy as Jeliza-Rose escapes the vast loneliness of her new home into the fantasy world that exists in her imagination, until she meets Dickens (Brendan Fletcher), a mentally damaged young man with the mind of a ten year-old.

As optimistic as it is surreal, as humorous as it is suspenseful - TIDELAND is a celebration of the power of a child's imagination.
