Keda (Kodi Smit-McPhee), a young hunter in prehistoric Europe, finds himself lost and alone after being separated from his tribe following a tragic incident whilst hunting for food.

Dazed and confused and nursing a broken leg, Keda finds companionship with a similarly injured wolf, and the two must overcome thousands of years of instinct in order to coexist and survive the imminent winter snows. Alpha is most easily described as the lovechild of The Revenant and My Dog Skip, shot in the hyper-stylised fashion of Zack Snyder. There are moments that take inspiration from the dramatic, slow motion action sequences of 300, with the choreography to match, and many shots throughout the film range from impressive to downright gorgeous.
