Storyline

Avakum (Henry Brandon) is an old trapper who is having a harder and harder time getting by because of the dwindling wildlife in the region. One day he is on a tiger hunt when a big cat attacks his friend's son. Ava tries to shoot the tiger but accidentally kills the boy instead. Thinking he's accused of murder, he flees civilization, and eventually adapts to life among these same tigers. Boris (Herbert Nelson) , knows that his son's death was an accident, and tries to find Avakum and tell him he's innocent and should came back to the village. In the year that follows, Ava survives the harsh Siberian winter and finds himself at home beyond civilized life, to the point where when Boris finally does find him, it is a very touching goodbye, since the two old friends have drifted apart and have to remain in their separate worlds.

Best Wild Life Film
11 September 2004 | by (CA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best Wildlife films ever made. Unfortunately, it is not from one of the major studios & hence not much publicity is done. or saved.

It is almost impossible to get a copy of this film. I have been searching for last 2-3 years.

It is a must see for all wildlife lovers.

This movie had a very touching tale of a trapper who befriends wild Siberian tigers & lives with them. It had some of the best tiger filming ever.

If anyone ever gets a copy of this, I would like to know about it.

DON'T MISS THIS FILM!!
