Part of the Best of British Strand


Two lifelong friends (Jack Lowden and Martin McCann) leave Edinburgh for an isolated Scottish Highlands village on a weekend hunting trip. After a night drinking with locals (who just about tolerate them) they head out on a misty morning to hunt deer. Things go tragically wrong and they decide to try and cover up an accident, but as they become stranded in the village they are drawn into a dark nightmare. Gun-wielding villagers force them to make a series of terrible and impossible choices.
