BACKCOUNTRY is a tense thriller about a young couple who go camping in the Canadian wilderness. Alex is a seasoned camper while Jenn is… not. After much convincing, she finally agrees to let him take her to one of his favorite spots, the secluded Blackfoot Trail. They push deeper and deeper into the forest, Alex insisting that he remembers the way. However, the further they go, the less certain he becomes. After three days, their path disappears: they are hopelessly lost. Without food or water, they struggle to find their way back. When they realize that they have entered bear territory, the terror gets turned up to a whole new level.
BACKCOUNTRY had its world premiere at TIFF 2014.
BACKCOUNTRY will open in theatres across Canada on August 14.
