Bleak, somber depiction of the nomadic life of early Cro-Magnon man. "The Tribe" is a small family clan of hunters and gatherers who must constantly keep moving over the landscape in order to survive. A death, injury, sickness or infertility is a major threat to these people. Predators and cannibalistic "Neanderthals" also take their toll. At this stage, man himself is an endangered species as this film eloquently conveys. As you get to know this band through their tribulations and stoic persistence to survive, you will come to wonder at the miracle of our prehistoric progenitors' battle with nature, armed with only the most primitive of tools and the will to live.
