A disagreement with her domineering parents (Amy Irving Victor Garber) sends Winnie outside the fence that surrounds her pristine house and protects her from the outside world and into the nearby forbidden woods. Her journey becomes a far greater adventure than she ever anticipated when she meets the Tucks a family of immortals that live deep in the woods. Parents Angus (William Hurt) Mae (Sissy Spacek) and their sons Miles (Scott Bairstow) and Jesse (Jonathan Jackson) stopped ageing more than a century ago after drinking from an enchanted spring a veritable fountain of youth. With the Tucks Winnie discovers the freedom lacking in her own small world and a romance blossoms between the mortal teenager and the immortal Jesse. With the local police searching for the missing Winnie and a mysterious stranger (Ben Kingsley) searching for the Tucks Winnie must choose between immortality and a life with her new friends or the life--and inevitable death--of a normal human.
