When Air Force One is shot down by terrorists leaving the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) stranded in the wilderness of Finland, there is only one person around who can save him: a 13-year old boy called Oskari (Onni Tommila). In the forest on a hunting mission to prove his maturity to his kinsfolk, Oskari had been planning to track down a deer, but instead discovers the most powerful man on the planet in an escape pod. With the terrorists closing in to capture their own "Big Game" prize, the unlikely duo must team up to escape their hunters. As anxious Pentagon officials observe the action via satellite feed, it is up to Oskari and his new sidekick to prove themselves and survive the most extraordinary 24 hours of their lives.
The film's teaser trailer debuted in Finland before the film Kummeli V (2014).
The adventures in the wilderness take place in Finnish Lapland, but the outdoor footage in the film are actually from the Alps since in director Jalmari Helander's opinion the real Lapland locations did not suit his image of what the scenery should look like
Big Game marks the first international project to have received backing from FFF Bayern’s special program for international co-productions.
