A Son’s Story of His Father’s Passion

The Mushroom Hunter is a Doc Film of Thirty Minutes

Torg and his buddies have hunted morel mushrooms for over fifty years. In this documentary shot in North Central Indiana, hear their stories, learn some of their secrets, and join them for a local hunt. This is a story of friendship and the trials that come with getting older.
