Synopsis

Egor is a 25-year-old vet on a rural farm which doubles as a hunting dog training center using domesticated foxes. Although he is a grown man, deep inside he is a wounded child who finds it easier to get along with animals than with people. In desperate need of a controlled environment after a violent past relationship with his mother, all he wants is to care for the animals and to feel part of the close-knit family he works for. When animal rights activists invade this fragile microcosm, upsetting its delicate balance, Egor's world begins to crumble...
