Between his injuries, lack of food, not knowing exactly where he’s going, and the insert of wolves chasing him, this character has a lot to deal with. I think the story while presenting itself as an action type film, is far more of a drama.

Upon waking in the morning he sees the animal has been abandoned by the pack and since both of them are injured there begins a little bit of a bond. At this point that your knee has to do with both of them getting back to the young man’s Village and the trials and tribulations that they have to face were in the bond strengthens and the Wolf becomes somewhat domesticated.
