Unsuspecting tourists are stalked by vicious poachers during a nighttime safari at a popular game reserve. According to local legend, a reclusive maniac known as Hyena Man dwells somewhere deep in the preserve. Realizing there's more profit in trading people than there is in wildlife, Hyena Man has trained a heavily armed gang of poachers in the delicate art of kidnapping. Some say the Hyena Man is nothing more than a legend, but when the tourists happen across some mutilated human remains, the truth comes out. Now, game ranger Jack Darwin (Greg Melvill-Smith) is determined to deal with the human poachers personally. As Jack sets out on his mission of vengeance, the group stays behind with tracker Akani (Yule Masiteng) to await rescue. Meanwhile, their best hope for survival rests in the hands of Sean (Christopher Beasley), Jack's estranged and deeply troubled son.
