Set in 1901, this period epic follows Willem Morkel
– a Boer and family man whose wife and son are

and defeat the ruthless Colonel Swannell at his own
game — Rugby.
Inspired by true events, this gloriously filmed South
African epic is the story of a man whose character
exceeds his despera!on. He and the prisoners who
join him are in a fight for their na!on and their
lives, literally bea!ng the system at its own 'game'.
The tension is racheted‐up un!l the impeccable res‐
olu!on. Expansive, touching and inspiring, this film
will have audiences cheering in their seats.

It's a reality that gets tougher to handle every day:
roads and development are hemming in our spec‐
tacular wildlands, trapping our amazing wild ani‐
mals in habitats too small, and offering no way out.
But — there is a way: over, under and around it.
TrekWest adventurer John Davis believes, if we
learn to work together now, we can save what we
love before it's too late. If we connect our best wild
places, we will give wildlife enough room to survive
and do what comes naturally — keeping our land‐
scapes and communi!es healthy.
It's about iden!fying problems and suppor!ng their
solu!ons. Taking the route of grizzlies, wolves,
cougars and jaguars, John experienced their great‐
est challenges in ge&ng where they need to go.
This alone, however, would accomplish li%le. He
went the extra mile, mee!ng conserva!on heroes
and learning about amazing projects that are key to
connec!ng western wild places.
Follow John Davis as he treks 5000 miles in 8
months from Mexico to Canada to bring awareness
to the importance of connected wildlife corridors
along the spine of the con!nent.
