The last Tasmanian tiger in existence has been spotted in a mountainous region of the island off the Australian coast. Ex-mercenary Martin (Willem Dafoe) is dispatched to hunt it down by a biotech company who believes it carries a unique and valuable chemical. Posing as an environmental scientist, he begins his pursuit of the creature, only to encounter a nearby community riven with conflict and simmering tensions. The Hunter is an intelligent and beautifully shot eco-thriller.
