A hunter is hired by a biotech company to go to Tasmania and follow up on two sightings of the Tasmanian Tiger. His orders are to recover tissue and organ samples and to report back once he has them, as the company is convinced the reports are reliable. He befriends the children of the woman he is lodging with, and helps reduce her dependency on medication – caused by her partner having been lost some eight months earlier in the same region that the hunter is searching. During his search he becomes embroiled in the conflict between loggers and 'greenies', people protesting against the logging. He finds the murdered remains of the missing father, and discovers the location of one of the tiger's dens. He stakes it out, but is accosted by another company operative who attempts to shoot him. After shooting the operative, he proceeds to stake out the tigers den. Upon running into the last Thylacine, the hunter reluctantly shoots the animal, and proceeds to cremate its body, so that the animal and the wilderness, will not be exploited.
