A weekend hunting party in Transylvania becomes something darker when the true motives of the hunters are revealed following a shooting. Eurochannel premiers Unleashed.
Three highly successful professionals go on a hunting weekend in Transylvania and have an unfortunate accident. Panic leads to bad decisions, and that's when the real hunt begins.
The hunt starts badly, a local is shot in a fatal accident, and hunters choose to hide the body and remain silent instead of following the official procedure. On the way down the mountain, however, it turns out that there was an eyewitness to the accident who would be willing to remain silent for money. All that remains is to get the money.
The apparent calm quickly dissipates into nothingness. It gradually becomes clear that all three guests have their own secret plan: the secrets of their past will turn allies into enemies, and enemies into allies again. Moreover, the revenge-hungry members of the local community also enter the games of the three city strangers at one point, and the story ends in a chase through the mountains.
Set in the mountains of Transylvania, this tense Hungarian thriller is the film of Áron Mátyássy, who wrote the Szemle Grand Prize winner Lost Times six years ago.
