When there are no more leaders to follow, who will guide you to safety?

Life is tough in the wilderness, never more so than during an Ice Age. Harsh weather conditions and sabre-toothed foes have cut many a life short across this barren land where each day is a blessing. A young warrior knows this all too well, and heads out on his debut hunt with his tribe’s most elite members to ensure he can make the best of what he’s got.

Unfortunately, the trip takes a turn for the worst and the teenager is tossed over the side of a cliff by an angry bison. Believing he his dead, his fellow tribesmen return to their village where his death is mourned throughout the community.

Shockingly, there’s still life in this boy yet. Waking up sore and broken, he attempts to make his way home, and chances upon an injured wolf, who he nurses back to health. Together, the unlikely duo must battle the elements and find their way to shelter quickly before the cold kills them off.

Previously titled The Solutrean, epic survival thriller Alpha is directed by Albert Hughes (The Book of Eli) and stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, who is best known for his roles in Let Me In (2010), The Road (2009), and his voice work as the lead character in ParaNorman (2012).

Natassia Malthe (Battle of the Drones) and Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson (Game of Thrones) also star.
