In the mountainous region of Georgia is Mount Raven, a peaceful community presided over by sheriff Grady (Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Gary Busey, The Firm).. Also at home in the wild is 12-year-old Roy (Ty Wood, The Big White), home-schooled by this devoted mother, Rose. Isolated from the town, they're a family of nature- at peace with it, with nothing to fear. Then a dismembered body is found in the area. Locals assume they have a murderer on their hands. But the foe is more formidable than belived. A print found near the scene indentifies the predator as the Bengal tiger that has escaped from a traveling carnival. 600 pounds, 12 feet from nose to tail, it'shone of the most powerful cats on Earth. Now it'shloose and there'shno man on the Appalachian Trail with the skill, or the courage, to take it down.
