The Hunter

Deep in the country, in a small and forgotten village lives Nelson, the drunkard and the war hero…forgotten by his king and country. His family–wife and infant son–only wish for a cow…the “wet nurse” they call it. The story beings at the death of the cow…torn to pieces by a hungry she-wolf mother, because all the game has been exterminated by humans. Nelson is forced to exchange his war medals for three bullets by his cheapskate of a brother…his brother that lives lavishly on human sorrow. He makes the hunter an offer: three wolf skins and a deer in exchange for a new cow. Trapped, Nelson, now the Hunter, with his gun and his rage, makes for the forest while the wolf he seeks, seeks for someone’s death as her own consolation.
