'The Hunt' follows the life of three poachers in the Bavarian alps of the 1870's.
In defiance of landowners and laws made to protect the very people who made them;
an uncle and his two nephews have decided to continue to hunt illegally.
But the hunters become the hunted, as the gamekeeper and his deputy come upon them
unexpectedly during one of their adventures. In an ambush one of the boys gets killed.
The other two men manage to stay undiscovered, but to keep their identities hidden
they have to escape with their friend's body before the killers can reach it.
The noose around their necks tightens more and more as the gamekeeper closes in on them.
