The world has all but withered away. Only a few groups remain, clutching each other for warmth, for hope.
Christian and Adam, father and son, cold and starving.
In a frigid forest, the man has taught his boy to track and to hunt, and with his rifle finally leveled at the deer, Christian now teaches Adam how the animal’s life must be taken. To satisfy the hunger, to keep death away, if only for a few days more.
But Joe ruins their shot. Joe’s desperation drives the deer away. Joe’s questions grind against the old morality Christian clings to.
How long should they chase the deer and hope to catch him? How long should they hope at all?
Amid a world of scarcity, Christian, Adam and Joe find themselves in an endless hunt for food- a catalyst that pushes the boundaries of old and new morality as a father, son and friend.
