A Zambian man is nursed through a recurrence of malaria by his daughter and granddaughter. As they try to manage his fever he relives an event that continues to haunt him.
Three Years Ago…
In the African bush a hunter is confronted by an armed conservationist and her ranger and bound to a tree with one of his own snares. A terrible storm breaks and forces them to remain where they are until it passes. The hunter, convinced that he is to be executed, engages the conservationist in a dangerous game of argument and counter argument in a desperate bid to free himself.
In this tense tale of entrapment and deceit, who can tell the hunter from the hunted?
