A successful man’s downfall leads him to a hidden world of survival in this “compelling, chilling investigation into the dark instincts of masculinity” (The Guardian, UK). When Adam loses his high-status advertising job, it shatters his self-image, as well as the fragile equilibrium of his life. Fleeing his debtors, Adam abandons his family and takes to sleeping rough in a local park. But just as Adam is about to truly hit bottom, he is befriended by a fraternity of homeless men. Joining their self-sufficient society, Adam soon learns to appreciate the tough new regimen: secret crop cultivation, daily yoga—and on Sundays, hand-to-hand combat. It’s a paradise—until winter comes. Starving and exhausted, Adam decides to return to comforts of his old life. But the men have other plans for him. Now, in order to survive, Adam is forced to confront his own wildness within.
