Storyline

Christine Shaye works for the struggling television station Global Explorer. In an effort to find a good documentary subject, Christine travels to Africa to meet documentary maker John Varty. She finds out he has been following a mother leopard for the last twelve years and is convinced she has found the best project Global Explorer can think of. One of the executives in the United States however is trying his utmost to keep the project from getting started and things in Africa aren't going that well either. John reports that the mother leopard has died after a lion attack, leaving behind her two young cubs. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

ADORABLE!!
10 September 2001 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

The only reason I turned this movie on is because I am a Brooke Shields fan. And I like Martin Sheen as well. The plot didn't appeal to me at first. But after watching this movie for a few minutes, I fell in love. With these two ADORABLE cheeta cubs! The movie is loosely based on a true story about a woman who pulled in by a man's story of his 12 year devotion to a cheeta and her life. Now this mother cheeta has cubs that need taking care of. Brooke's character wants to make a movie about this man's story. Anyways, it's real cute, and if you get the chance, take a look. I am sure you'll like it, and if not, you'll be at least saying "AWWWW!!!" a lot!!
