Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Set against the awe-inspiring backdrop of East Africa, director John Downer's Pride utilizes real wildlife in detailing the communication methods of the animal kingdom. They may not be able to form actual words, but the complex sounds and actions of the animals featured in Pride enable them to tell their remarkable story from an entirely new perspective. Despite young lion cub Suki's inability to come to grips with the demands of family life, a sudden moment of tragedy forces the youngster to fend for herself. When the law of the Serengeti comes smashing down on the innocent but courageous cub, Suki has no choice but to face her fate and accept both the good and the bad sides of nature's law -- no matter how harsh or unforgiving.
