In the winter of 1719, Naru and her people are hunting deer in the Great Plains. A young Comanche woman trained as a healer, she often dreams of becoming a great hunter like her brother Tanabe. While tracking with Sarai, their dog, she witnesses the lights of an alien Predator’s spacecraft taking it as a sign to prove herself by finding this prey—a cougar that has taken one of their tribe’s hunters. Tanabe tells her that if she wants to come to his search party for this lion, which she’s already seen and knows is in a cave nearby, then all she can do is track and provide medical treatment when needed. On their return to the village, they find that one of their tribe’s hunters has been taken by a mountain lion. Tanabe says Naru can come to the search party with him and provide medical treatment, or she can stay home with Sarai. After informing her father, Tanabe goes out on the hunt for this lion alone. Early in the morning, in a cave not far from camp on a ledge overlooking a ravine, Tanabe shoots and kills this mountain lion—the first hunt he has managed to do so that doesn’t involve finding or being found by prey animals.

Other scenes involved digital double takes, using visual effects and editing to make it appear as if she was interacting with someone who wasn’t there.
