Synopsis by Jinko Labitag

As the world laments over the dwindling population of elephants in Africa, the documentary film When Lambs Become Lions depicts the life of a Kenyan ivory dealer who is struggling to maintain his business, and more importantly, to live. He has a cousin named Asan, who, too, was a poacher at one point, but is now a conservatory ranger. Unfortunately, Asan, is also a victim of the system, being unpaid for months. Together, they see a possible solution to their great problem. Directed by Jon Kasbe.
