9-year-old Bruno is just about to finish a troll with his gamer friends, when his mom switches off electricity. The family is going off to Sweden for a calming nature trip without smart devices.

 

The long car ride causes disturbance on the back seat, and as a final warning Bruno’s dad threats to leave Bruno behind. As irony of fate would have it, this ends up happening when dad breaks his leg and the family needs to go search for help.

 

In no time wolves are after Bruno, and the boy must escape with a boat without oars. As a search team looks for the boy he sails further and further away from civilization.

 

When the media find out how Bruno exactly got missing, the parents are at each other’s throats. Bruno turns out to be far tougher than his parents would have ever imagined.
