A timid schoolteacher struggles to survive the Stag weekend from hell, as he joins his future brother-in-law and several obnoxious friends, on a deer-stalking expedition in the Scottish highlands. It quickly gets messier than anyone expected; as the hunters become the hunted, and are eliminated one by one, sordid secrets emerge and old friendships are tested to the limit.
