After losing his wife in a traumatic attack, an elderly hunter seeks revenge on the culprit: a massive albino alligator. Months of waiting for the creature to resurface turns his grief into a desperate obsession. However, when the hunter finally has the chance to kill the alligator and obtain catharsis, he feels an unexpected bond. In the monster’s eyes, he sees his wife looking back. Reunited with his love, the hunter decides to leave the safety of his boat and swim with the alligator.
