He will have to leave his family and fend off attacks from foxes, eagles and wolves.
Predators, prey, forces of nature, spectacular, at times hostile mountain environments… The journey begins among the most stunning flowery meadows in the world…”
In its initial form, the documentary was intended to be a portrayal of the central Apennines from the point of view of one of its most contentious protagonists. From the Apennines the wolf has made a spectacular comeback to much of Italy and beyond. In the last few decades, however, this virtually invisible animal has been increasingly spotted and photographed. Narrated in the first person, the film explores our attitude towards the wild, our attraction to it and our distancing from it. For those who wish to immerse themselves in the world of the wolf, the only way is to take a difficult path in the opposite direction to the one our lives are taking.
