SYNOPSIS

Three men go on an extended weekend hunting trip. An initial spell of hunting success sharpens their instincts and stirs a sense of rivalry. But one day all animals vanish without a trace and the forest turns eerily quiet. The men become obsessed with the idea that the hunt must continue, no matter how dangerous or absurd the consequences.

Digital Pitch

"Telling this story gave me the opportunity to face an abiding fear of mine: that we’re all capable of committing violent acts for no reason that can be believed or understood from a distance. The fear that psychological explanations are not enough; that humans have an infinite capacity for irrational and self-destructive behavior and that we will never know why or be able to prevent it."
