"Among Wolves" is an observational documentary film about those who struggle to heal long after war's end. The Wolves are a rare breed, a multi-ethnic motorcycle club led by Bosnian War veterans. In the mountains where they once fought, they now defend the threatened herd of wild horses with whom they once shared the front line. Since the war, a harsh environment, poachers, and urbanization have threatened the herd. Stirred by their spirit of survival, the Wolves fight for them and organize ever more ambitious humanitarian efforts for their town and region. In helping others, they discover a new kind of freedom. In working together, they get ever closer to controlling their own fate and finally emerging from the shadow of war.
