A documentary about living with Wolves narrated by Liev Schreiber. Wolves have been characterized as ruthless animals with no characteristics other than the lust for blood, determined to break this misconception, documentary film makers Jim and Jaime Dutcher spent six years living with an untamed pack of them in the wilderness of Idaho. Wolves are indeed predators capable of tearing a man to pieces but as the Dutchers gain the trust of the pack they somewhat become a part of it and are allowed to see the intimate traits of these extremely intelligent animals.
