A son is traumatised after the violent death of his mother. At the insistence of his overbearing and traditional grandfather, Allie’s father attempts to guide his son into manhood through a series of hunting trips. He is reluctant to enforce the same patriarchal values on his son but goes through the motions despite his misgivings. His father’s influence is too strong to resist. Plagued by nightmares and guilt Allie’s restless sleep is disturbed one night by an argument. Armed with his newly gained hunting skills and the patriarchal legacy which he has been initiated into, he investigates with fatal consequences.
