Wild Men


In a desperate attempt to overcome his midlife crisis, Martin has run away from society to live in the forest. He has gotten himself a bow and a caveman outfit, but the truth is: he sucks at survival. One day, he comes across Musa, a drug dealer who is injured and on the run. Hoping to escape their many problems, the eccentric duo embarks on a hectic ride across the fjords. Chased by the local police, an angry Viking, violent thugs, and – last but not least – Martin’s family! A whimsical tale about the eternal battle between human and nature, which speaks to our deepest instincts.
