    • Synopsis
    • In a barren snowfield walks a pre-historic hunter, wearing a traditional deerskin outfit, equipped with daggers and arrows. The last of his tribe, he struggles to survive despite the severe weather and scarcity of food. Unbeknown to him, he is chased by a group of mature American ladies who have embarked on a cro-magnon safari in their new SUVs. Luckily, they are distracted by a sale at their local outlet mall, momentarily forgetting about their prey. As the hunter progresses deeper into the icy wasteland, he encounters a terrorizing beast. The hunter and the beast engage in a climactic battle. The hunter barely escapes and takes shelter inside a nearby cave. Once inside he begins to hibernate. When he awakes, the white, snow-covered landscape has turned into a lush tropical forest inhabited with a mysterious flora and fauna: a new world, both magnificent and frightening.
