The film stars Lance Henriksen and Mortensen, who also wrote the screenplay, as a father and son whose different worlds collide.
In the past 35 years, Mortensen has featured in about 50 films by filmmakers including David Cronenberg, Peter Weir, Jane Campion, Peter Jackson, Gus Van Sant, Brian de Palma, Agustín Díaz Yanes, Ana Piterbarg, Lisandro Alonso, David Oelhoffen, Peter Farrelly and Matt Ross.
Although perhaps best known to mainstream audiences for the role of Aragorn in the Lord Of The Rings franchise, he has also been nominated for an Oscar three times - for Eastern Promises, Captain Fantastic and Green Book.
Born in New York in 1958 to a Danish father and North American mother, Mortensen spent a large part of his childhood in Argentina, which means he speaks fluent Spanish and has also led to roles in Spanish language films including Everybody Has A Plan.
