    • Synopsis
    • The action takes place in a wildlife sanctuary in the Canadian North. The main character is an antisocial forest ranger. Driven by his childhood experiences, he chooses to settle as far from  civilization as possible and keep his life to himself, quietly drowning his nightmares in alcohol. But everything changes in a minute when he loses his job due to the sanctuary shutting down. The news attracts lots of poachers who are ready to begin their feast of crows. Now, the ranger is about to face something bigger than his childhood fears. Ready to hold his ground at all costs, he declares  war on the hostile invaders. 

      This film could be described as a thriller with some elements of magical realism, with the main plot around a good guy who is trying to protect his world from evil. It is about love and respect for nature, and the wish to protect it even at the cost of one's own life. Be ready for enchanting views of the Canadian wilderness, brutal action scenes and a shocking twist at the end of the film.
