Bjorn is a Dutch hunter with a passion for nature. Through voice-overs, he describes the unwritten rules, experiences, friendships and rivalries that exist within the world of hunting. It's the recollection of the smallest moments that trigger hunters to go hunt again. These small moments are emphasized through the film's use of slow motion.
