Movie Info

Bored small-town teens anxious for excitement get in over their heads when they believe the wild tales of a wounded stranger in this absorbing and taut Canadian drama. Kyle, Eric and Brad are fourteen years old and already feel trapped by the boring routines of their small-town lives. Their only refuge from their adolescent angst is an abandoned cabin located in the woods. One day they got to their sanctuary and find themselves staring at a heavily bleeding wounded wild man with a gun pointed right at them. He calls himself Luke Cooper and tells them that he is a good cop who must escape from some bad ones. The three boys totally believe the tale and so begin helping Luke. The adventure is great fun until suspicions rise and they discover the awful truth: Luke is a real criminal wanted for killing a cop. Luke then turns violent on them taking Eric hostage after beating him. The tension increases as the inevitable blood soaked final confrontation approaches.more
