Synopsis

Jamie, an orphaned teenager attending prep school, is sent to live with his Uncle Angus in the wilderness after his scholarship runs out. Cultures collide as Jamie refuses to accept his new bearings, but with the encouragement of Angus and Mewasin (Graham Greene, Dances with Wolves), he reluctantly joins the local tribe’s hunt. When Jamie and young tribal hunter Awasis become separated from their group, the two slowly learn to respect and depend on each other to survive an unforgiving land.

Dove Review

This film is a winner that will hold your interest and grip your heart. Watching these two young boys interact and go from adversaries to bonded buddies is great viewing and will spark dinner table discussions afterwords. I appreciated the lack of blood and gore, when an elk is killed for the boys survival. The scenery in the far northwest is breathtaking. There are many themes interwoven: obedience to parents, facing abrupt changes in life, and accepting people from different cultures and backgrounds. I recommend this video for anyone.
