Lynx Man is a documentary about pensioner Hannu’s entrancing journey towards finding a connection with the Eurasian lynx hiding in the forests. With his trail cameras, Hannu opens a gateway into the Finnish nature and towards a genuine connection with the environment.
After an accidental injury, Hannu is living on a disability pension at his home farm. One day, he finds a
dead lynx that has been hit by a car. Hannu realizes that the lynx who lived in the area during his childhood have returned. He is filled with excitement and vigour. He sets up trail cameras in an effort to make contact with a species he thought he had lost forever. Six months later, there are a total of 23 cameras clicking away in the woods.
Can Hannu save the Eurasian lynx, or is it in fact nature who ultimately saves the man?
