Reclusive veteran Frank Olsen yearns to escape from the complexities of the modern world. Unfortunately, despite his efforts, the world comes looking for him. When he discovers a discarded, beaten woman fighting for her life in the snow, Frank must decide whether to continue to turn his back on society or confront the world he loathes.

Director's Statement

When we set out to make Hunting Lands I really wanted to make a film that wasn't going to lead the audience. I wanted to tell a simple story of good and evil while allowing the audience to fill in the gaps for themselves, allowing them to empathize with the characters and place motivations as they see fit. The exposition is short and sweet and offers just a glimpse into the backstory of our characters while allowing the audience to fill in the blanks with their own assumptions.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Crime, Lifestyle, Gun Culture.
