Based on a true story, Backcountry tells the story of a couple of hikers who lose their way in one of the most remote corners of Canada. With no food or water to survive, it won’t be long before they discover in horror that they are in an area inhabited by wild bears. In this survival horror movie, nature becomes an inhospitable and very dangerous place.
