A new drama. An age old conflict.
A storm approaches.
A bush camp. A hunter, captured by an Anti-Poaching Unit is guarded by an angry conservationist armed with a gun. As he desperately pleads for his life, conflicting issues surrounding conservation, population expansion and the impact of commercial tourism are personalised in a presentational mix of shocking film footage set against live action that is taut, edgy and, at times, uncomfortably comic.
