Ernesto is a hunter and leads a secluded existence with his wife and daughter in a small town in Patagonia. But his quiet life is put to the test when, after the death of his ex-wife, he is given custody of his son Nahuel. Father and son haven't seen each other for 10 years and Nahuel refuses to recognize or respect Ernesto. The power struggle between the pair becomes increasingly insidious – until Ernesto decides to take Nahuel hunting. Set in the bleak beauty of wintry Patagonia, Hunting Season portrays a father-son duel of great emotional intensity.
