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

Originally the movie was to take six months to finish but it took a year to complete because it was delayed because of the worst rain in thirty years. See more »

An interesting plot, but this film's best aspects include the wonderful African scenery and wildlife, and one of the very BEST soundtracks ever set to film. As I write this, six people have voted on it, herein, and the average rating is 9.2 out of 10! Yet, this wonderful film seems to be totally unavailable on video! There's something very wrong with that! THIS film should be in the stores!!
