Kamal, a young Iraqi man trying to enter Europe on foot through the border between Turkey and Bulgaria is captured by Bulgarian border police. He manages to escape but is wounded and chased relentlessly and aggressively by a group of Bulgarian vigilantes calling themselves Migrant Hunters. Kamal finds himself lost in a seemingly interminable forest: an underworld where rules and laws don’t exist. For three days and three nights Kamal must fight for his life as tension and violence between him and the hunters rise until a final, violent, life-or-death confrontation.
