Rosco Pratt, now 18, is supposed to kill his mother to take over leadership of the Pack. He wants that responsibility like he wants a silver bullet to the temple, and none of the rest of the Pack seems eager for him to take it. The Pack has bigger problems to worry about, too, like the fact that a huge logging company is going to begin destroying their forest home within the month. With his best friend telling him to flee from the impossible odds and his girlfriend telling him to seek revenge for what the humans did to Rosco’s father a decade ago, Roscoe is caught in the middle of the worst kind of indecision. That is, until he winds up a hostage in the logger camp and the people he cares about begin dropping like flies.
