Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar

This documentary follows a mother leopard and her three young cubs on the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. As the mother struggles to feed and protect her children, viewers get a glimpse into the daily life of a leopard. For six months, this mother leopard and her cubs are followed through the Kenyan landscape as the mother fends off attackers and stalks for prey, with her cubs looking on and learning from their mother how to survive in the wild. Also learn about the physical makeup of the leopard and get an insider's look at other inhabitants of the game reserve, including lions, cheetahs, zebras, antelopes, and hyenas.
