Since 1966, the wolf is preserved in Sweden. That's a controversial decision, since it takes its toll from, for instance, the Samis' reindeers. This has grown into a kind of conflict between those who live in the bigger cities in the South and Samis and hunters in the North.
This movie is about the middle-aged man (Peter Stormare), who lives alone in the wilderness, watching the reindeers. His nephew helps him. Then the wolf arrives, attacks the herd, and the plot is on.
This film shows understanding for both sides and you are forced to think and feel for yourself. It's rather obvious what will happen, but still this is told with considerable intelligence. You have seen much worse.
