Young Tina lives with her mother and stepfather on a wildlife reserve in Kenya. While her stepfather believes this is a wonderful environment for her to grow up in, her mother becomes increasingly concerned by her behaviour. These concerns are reinforced when it is revealed that her daughter's best friend in the whole world is a fully grown lion. Worried that her daughter may be turning into a savage, she sends for her former husband, Tina's biological father, in the hope that he can take her back to civilization (in this case rural Connecticut). But it seems as though Tina's mother wants something more than a civilized upbringing for her daughter. Written by

[King comes to Tina]
King! I knew you loved me. You saw King chose me. He's mine!
Stay away from her. You naughty thing.
King will see me home. He really loves me.
Now your beginning to see?
If I hadn't seen it... Well, I wouldn't have believed it. It's like witchcraft.
[Riding away on King]
Now do you understand King? I don't want you to have anything more to do with that nasty lioness again. Who does she think she is?

This movie has many charms, but foremost is that of Pamela Franklin, an extraordinary young actress who went on to make some interesting movies, but disappeared from the scene many years ago, after making too many horror movies.
