About Into The Black: In the small, orange-blossom and sage-scented town of Ojai, California, where hippies and hipsters mingle, thirty-three-year-old Harper Wild, househusband extraordinaire, works himself to exhaustion. Raised as a lonely latchkey kid without any siblings, he obsesses over being a constant playmate to his daughter. But the seemingly innocent comments he hears daily from friends and strangers alike make it plain that even in this town of alternative lifestyles, raising kids and keeping house doesn’t qualify as a "real" job. INTO THE BLACK follows Harper on his quest for respect, triggered when he is forced to temporarily swap roles with his breadwinner wife. He leaves the familiarity of his home and family to spend the summer chasing fires from forest to forest, pushing the limits of physical endurance. But it is the unlikely friendships he makes along the way that help him overcome his own assumptions about the value of being a stay-at-home dad.
