Tau, its chief, trains his adolescent son Keda, accepting him and another boy to join the hunting party. His wife Rho worries that Keda is not ready, but Tau believes he is, and the hunters set out.Tau tests Keda by having him kill a boar they’ve caught, but Keda balks.
One night, the party’s fire draws the attention of a big cat, which lunges through their circle, snatching Keda’s friend; hearing the fatal struggle in the darkness, the tribe gives him up for dead.The hunters eventually reach a herd of steppe bison, which they attempt to stampede off a cliff. In the chaos, Keda is thrown over the edge, landing injured and unconscious on a small ledge. His father and the other hunters have no way to reach him, and they very reluctantly leave him for dead.Keda awakes and tries to climb the rest of the way down the cliff. A sudden heavy rainfall causes the ravine below to flood, and losing his grip, Keda jumps into the water. He survives, and splints his injured foot. Seeing the memorial cairn left by his tribe, he realizes he must trek back to the village by himself.He is attacked by a pack of wolves, but escapes up a tree, wounding one of them, which the others leave behind.
Keda takes pity on it and cares for its injury. Gradually gaining the wolf’s trust, he gives it water and then food, establishing himself as dominant by feeding himself first. He sets out for the village without the wolf, but it follows him. Their companionship grows, and they learn to hunt small boar together. The pack runs off, and with Keda’s blessing, Alpha joins them.Keda continues his journey alone, as the season changes to winter. On a frozen lake, he encounters a pack of wolves feeding. Recognizing Alpha, he runs to them, but the ice breaks and he falls through.
Later, they take refuge from hyenas in a cave, where they are attacked by another big cat. Alpha and the cat fight, and Keda kills the cat with the arrow. Meanwhile, Keda begins to cough up blood. When Alpha finally cannot walk, Keda carries the wolf.Keda eventually finds the village and reunites happily with his parents, who are amazed and proud of him. As the village healer tends to Alpha’s wounds, the wolf delivers a litter of pups, to Keda’s surprise. Alpha and her pups are formally welcomed into the tribe, and grow up in the care of Alpha and Keda.
