A young city boy flees his mistakes to bury a body in the Pennsylvania wilderness. While burying the body, a tree falls on him... pinning him to the ground in the middle of the woods. The first and only person to find him is a middle aged rural bow hunter who checks the body bag for supplies only to make a gruesome discovery. As he turns around, the city boy's gun barrel stares him in the face. These two, from opposite walks of life, have each other's lives in their hands. How will they survive nature, if they can't survive each other?
In the woods, a hunter discovers a city boy trapped under a fallen tree with a dead body. When the city boy draws a gun on the hunter, they find themselves at a deadly impasse.

“Blood on the Leaves” centers on a black, city boy (Khiry) who is grappling with the sins of his past as he buries a body far from the city near an old Pennsylvania logging plot. In the midsts of digging a shallow grave, a tree falls, injuring him and pinning him to the ground. A nearby white, country bow hunter (Nally), startled, drops his bow and runs towards the sound of the fallen tree. The hunter is unable to move the massive tree, or free the city boy. Just as he is leaving to find help, he stumbles across the covered body. The city boy pulls a gun on the hunter. Locked in a deadly standoff, they are alone in the middle of the wilderness.
