Visually stunning, Alpha aims to tell the story of how dogs became domesticated. Set 20,000 years ago, the movie follows a young man named Keda as he tries to learn how to survive alone in the wilderness after he is involved in an accident during a hunt and presumed dead by his tribe. In the process of trying to find his way home, Keda is attacked by wolves and ends up forming an unlikely alliance with one after he injures it and it is abandoned by the rest of its pack. With winter approaching and danger around every turn, Keda and the wolf must learn to work together if they have any hope of surviving and finding their way home.
