Hi, this is my first attempt at my synopsis. Any thoughts or critiques are welcome. Not sure if it's long enough but I was trying to make it tight and to the point.
When BEN encounters a Sasquatch, KOLE, he is surprised by the similarities they share and after his life is saved by him they become fast friends. With his parents still reeling from his brother’s death, the only one Ben can share his experience with is his Uncle SAM, who admits to also having a secret relationship with a Sasquatch named GRIMOL.
Both agree it is imperative that Sasquatch remain hidden in order to preserve their species as humans greatly outnumber them, but when Kole’s brother is almost captured, the hunters come out in full force for reward money posted in the local paper.
Grimol and Sam encourage the friendship between Ben and Kole, hoping that the more they learn about each other, the more accepting humans may become of another species living with them openly. With this in mind, Ben joins Kole on a special rite of passage he must do called a Tribal Walk. What starts out as an enjoyable and uneventful trip, turns into a race for their lives, as they discover first-hand about hunters.
Four years later Ben and Kole are still great friends, but, feeling trapped in their own village, many Sasquatch are becoming increasingly unhappy with their situation and a rebel movement starts to form.
Sam tells Grimol that guns have been going missing from hunters and campers leading them to determine that certain sasquatch want to fight the humans. Meanwhile, Grimol’s son, who is unhappy that his Father chose to mentor Kole to become an elder in the council instead of him, reveals a secret that ends with both Grimol and Kole locked up.
Feeling that the Sasquatch need help, Ben comes up with a plan to make people stop trying to capture his friends’ species. Although the plan ultimately works, it is at a great cost to Ben and with World War II starting, he considers joining.
The Sasquatch council learns that there are tens of thousands more of their species than they thought and a plan starts to form. Meanwhile Grimol takes the fall for Kole and insists it was all his idea for Kole to meet with a human.
Kole’s brother secretly meets with Ben and Sam to tell them what happened to their friends, but his meeting ends tragically, forever altering Ben and Kole’s friendship.
The council decides to let Kole out, but give him a dangerous mission as punishment; to find the other Sasquatch tribes. With both of their lives changed forever, Ben leaves to fight in the World War and Kole departs on his mission determined to have his own war…with humans.
