A Taliban combatant is captured after he kills three American soldiers. We learn little of his backstory -- who he is, or why they find him in Afghanistan's mountainous tribal regions -- but he is captured by American soldiers and shipped off to Poland. He finds himself in a region that is as forbidding and isolated, but more alienating and unfamiliar than his home. When a prisoner convoy gets into an accident, a chase ensues, and the audience, placed within the perspective of the capture, follows his efforts to escape and survive. So much is shown and so little told in this film, we ponder whether to fear or loathe our protagonist. The film is entirely shot from the escapee's perspective, so his is all we have. What are his pursuer's thinking? We don't know in this spare narrative of survival. Where is he? What is a frozen lake? What can he possibly eat to survive. In this alpine nowhere, all of these questions loom ominously and this film.
