Set in the forests of medieval Russia, Hunted gives new flavor to the old tale of Beauty and her Beast. Yeva and her sisters enjoy comfort and wealth living with their father in the city. However, Yeva longs for the days she used to hunt with her father in the forest. When financial ruin reaches their family, they are forced to retreat to the old hunting cottage. Yeva prefers this life, but their father is acting strange. When he goes missing, Yeva searches for him.
In her search, Yeva encounters the mythical Beast. Riddled with Russia folk tales, Hunted presents a very different and more complex relationship between Beauty and the Beast. This fairy tale retelling is multilayered and a well-written adaptation of an old tale.
