Director Bobby Eerhart and second-unit director Hans Scheepmaker) have fashioned a convoluted but standard shock-and-schlock story beginning with Deleye (Josse de Pauw), a poacher and his wife Sybil (Chris Lomme) and ending with almost everyone dead except the cameraman. Deleye and Sybil live in the middle of a forest in Belgium, where he poaches game and ironically has named their home "Gamekeeper." Sybil's older children by her first marriage, Hugo (Marc van Eeghem) and Lisa (Annick Christians) live with them, as does Lisa's baby boy, fathered by her stepfather. Deleye is not easy to live with, but that is nothing compared with the sudden intrusion of Jim (Hidde Maas) and Charlie (Jack Monkau), two petty gangsters looking for a place to hide out. Their violent arrival leads to confrontations with the police and ends in a twisted liaison between Lisa and Charlie. After several killings, Lisa takes her baby and runs away with Charlie, with the military in hot pursuit.
