Tanner, a passionate and single-minded mandolin player in a multi-instrumental folk band, struggles to drag his bandmates towards productivity and relevance at the risk of his own personal estrangement. But, after a disconcerting conversation with a famed singer-songwriter, Tanner takes a moment to pause and appreciate what he has already.

Getting There is a vibrant, musical consideration of an artist's struggle to collaborate and keep things in perspective.
