description

WOLVES UNLEASHED - AGAINST ALL ODDS, is the next film in the award-winning series which follows world-renowned Alberta based animal trainer, Andrew Simpson (THE REVENANT, GAME OF THRONES, WYNONNA EARP). This time his journey takes him to China, where he and his team are given the difficult task of raising and training wild Mongolian Wolves for a Chinese blockbuster. From the outset, they face countless challenges and obstacles. Andrew must find new ways to try and connect and build a bond with the wolves to achieve the impossible on film. This story is a roller coaster of emotions, not only for Andrew, but also for the wolves who have to adapt and overcome everything around them in order to survive.
