Synopsis/Details: 

Two friends are trapped in a hunting cabin by inclement weather and wild wolves. Tripp, a man in his twenties who takes responsibility for nothing, intends to confess to his friend, Sidd, the wrong he has done to him but the plan doesn’t work out as Sidd suffers from frost bite and seemingly dies through the night from possibly exposure or bite wound from a wolf on his hand.

We learn that Sidd and his wife Riya have a divide between them that they haven’t addressed, which in party with alcohol, fuels a decision by Tripp and Riya to have an affair.

Tripp confesses to Sidd’s dead body, but in the end, we find out that Sidd isn’t quite dead and he returns to exact revenge- an animal in the end.

The Writer: Paul Rowe

A screenwriter out of Midland, GA, Paul prefers to write scripts while sitting on the living room floor against the couch. This uncivilized and savage preference adds to his writer's voice and laces the tone of his screenplays. Even worse, he loves to rewrite his own and others' work - call the authorities. Paul lives with his much more civilized wife, Eli, their spitfire dog Maeve and an army of assassin cats just outside Atlanta in quiet Midland, Georgia. PJR Go to bio
