While living in nature, Christopher realizes how important it is to learn new skills in order to survive. He understands the importance of adventure, of courage.

Christopher, the protagonist, distances himself from his own life, from the rules, from the oppressive limits that others imposed on him, to seek his own freedom. This can only be done by going through and living in everything and for all of him: with his difficulties, his obstacles, his difficult times, his inhuman challenges. Nature is freedom. And above all it teaches you a freedom linked to respect for one’s ‘I’. Nature teaches you to be yourself. Into the Wild is truly an ode to all of this.
