This Canadian seriocomedy stars Vladimir Valenta as a man going through midlife crisis. He begins spending his evenings at the local zoo, where he stands hours on end observing the wolves. Native American Lawrence Brown shares Valenta's fascination, and together these would-be rugged individualists devise a plan to free the wolves. Unfortunately, the wolves themselves are not as enamored with the Great Outdoors as Valenta and Brown; the contented beasts refuse to leave their cage. Valenta follows suit, resigning himself to the "cage" of his humdrum life.
