Stunningly rejacketed as part of a major reinvention of this neglected 20th century master
THERE IS BUT ONE LAW: EAT OR BE EATEN.
Stopmouth and his family know of no other life than the daily battle to survive. To live they must hunt rival species, or negotiate flesh-trade with those who crave meat of the freshest human kind.
It is a savage, desperate existence. And for Stopmouth, considered slow-witted hunt-fodder by his tribe, the future looks especially bleak. But then, on the day he is callously betrayed by his brother, a strange and beautiful woman falls from the sky.
It is a moment that will change his destiny, and that of all humanity, forever.
With echoes of Tarzan, Conan and the Truman Show, Peadar Ó Guilín's debut is an action and ideas packed blockbuster that will challenge your perceptions of humanity and leave you hungry for more.
