Synopsis:

Barren landscapes. Unseen enemies. Hyena Road depicts the recent war in Afghanistan, where peaceful peoples trying to live their lives find themselves caught in cross-fire.

Under the command of Captain Pete Mitchell (Gross), ace sniper Ryan Sanders (Sutherland) has caught word of a dangerous insurgency. Stopping it will take the cooperation of Afghan locals and the dogged efforts of Canadian troops. Showing how forces on either side can work together to prevent senseless tragedy, Hyena Road goes down a dusty, dirty, thunderous path.

Hyena Road won three Canadian Screen Awards.

“The goal of the movie is truth-telling rather than flag-waving, but it also succeeds as impactful storytelling.” — Peter Howell, Toronto Star
