The Wilsons are trying their best to stay afloat. But Carla’s (Anna Lise Phillips) vet business is not going too strong and Adam’s (Jack Campbell) farming is severely threatened by the fact that his cows have been attacked by wild animals and more than one has been torn apart. But the real fight for survival starts when a pack of feral dogs lays siege to their farm house.

Do you know those medieval illustrations of lions done by people who have never actually seen a lion? The Pack has an equal accurate grasp of how dogs are, making the film ridiculous from the get go.
