Synopsis by Mark Deming

Noted conservationist John Varty plays himself in this drama about Christine Shaye (Brooke Shields), a documentarian who travels to Africa in order to make a film about Varty and his work. Varty is attempting to protect a pair of baby leopards whose parents were killed; he finds himself guarding them against both their natural enemies and human poachers. However, despite John and Christine's best efforts, they find themselves constantly at odds with hunters and easily-bribed game officials. Also released under the title Born Wild, Running Wild features Martin Sheen and David Keith in supporting roles.
