THE LAST TRAPPER
THE LAST TRAPPER


SYNOPSIS
"Real" trappers like Jack London do not exist anymore. There remains, however, one irreducible last soul who still abides by the old trapper philosophy of man living at one with nature. This Last Trapper is called Norman. Following Norman, his wife Nebraska and their dogs for a whole year in the far North, this film makes us walk in the footsteps of a real-life character and gives a rapturous insight into the battles and drama that are his daily lot, and the adventures of which his dogs are the main characters. "The Last Trapper" is total immersion in an unique environment, a journey of initiation and a celebration of a way of life in perfect harmony with animals and nature.
