A frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team.
It's okay son... I know you want this to be over. I'm right here. I will be right here... But you don't give up. You hear me? As long as you can still grab a breath, you fight. You breathe... keep breathing.
Glass, while recovering from his wounds, has a couple dream sequences. One of the images he recalls is a memory of seeing a huge pile of animal skulls during his time in the wilderness. Humans hunting wildlife to this degree (and piling up their skull bones) didn't occur in the 1820's. It happened later in the 19th Century American West, with the resultant near-extinction of the Plains buffalo herds.
At the end of the end credits: "The making and authorized distribution of this film supported over 15,000 jobs and involved hundreds of thousands of work hours."
