Title: FENRIS

Logline: To sustain his family through a grave winter, an exiled Norseman joins mercenaries investigating the abandonment of a secluded outpost only to become prey to an unknown breed of apex predator.

Synopsis: "Fenris" is a dark and vicious accounting of personal honor and redemption during the Pre-Viking Age world that incorporates the myth of Beowulf. The hyper realistic violence in this take on this classic tale is heightened by the introduction of a breed of apex predator far superior to any man. Vidar, a once feared and admired Norse warrior is called out of exile by his brother to investigate an abandoned outpost with an offer allowing for the return of his family to civilization. But, after living a life of laconic religious morality, Vidar is no longer the same hardened warrior of a decade previous. He is forced to reconcile between his new ethics and his suppressed brutal nature. As the legend of Beowulf alludes to Christianity's encroachment on the old world religions, "Fenris" examines man's instincts and his eternal struggle to subdue them through belief and will. This unflinching narrative reveals the difference between man and beast is not intelligence but morality.
