When an unsuspected visitor enters the forest, the hunter has to face his own hatred. A deep dark forest surrounds a small cottage, the home of a bitter old hunter who leads a peaceful secluded life until his routine is interrupted as he starts noticing strange tracks in his forest. Late one night, he catches a young boy of a darker complexion rummaging through his car. He tries to capture the boy, but manages to knock him out instead. Shocked, the hunter runs away. After guilt and fear keep gnawing at him for a few days, he decides to look for the boy. Eventually, he finds him hiding with his mother in an old hayrack at the edge of the forest and needs to face the reality and morality of his actions.
