In the XXI century, under the influence of anti-hunting forces, the opinion was established in the mass consciousness that hunting is wrong from a moral point of view, since the hunter "enjoys killing." Such sentiments create "clouds" of social hostility and even hatred around hunters. Sergey Yastrzhembsky wants to restore justice, put everything in its place and prove that only nature-saving hunting is able to preserve the fragile world of wildlife. The director will tell about this in his new documentary drama "Shot Of Hope".
