1920s Indochina. In the wild, a pair of adult tigers have just had a litter of two male cubs. It is a loving family unit, with the two brothers having a bond through their adventurous spirit. In different incidents, the cubs are captured individually, and although both in captivity live very different lives. Their individual captures were directly or indirectly associated with the work of Aidan McRory, a treasure and big game hunter, whose main goal is to make as much money for himself by selling his largely illegally obtained artifacts and animal parts at auction in Europe. Through the process, he has an emotional connection with one of the cubs, who is eventually named Kumal, but of who he eventually loses track. The cubs' lives are affected negatively by a number of other people who are working solely toward their own end goals, but the other cub, who is eventually named Sangha, also makes an emotional human connection to a young boy named Raoul Normandin, the son of the area ...

OMG this is one of the best movies ever. I LOVE TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cried so much for this movie... my face was all red and I just couldn't stop crying! even for the happy parts... I think this movie gives out a great message ...(for hunters or people who actually live in a country where there are tigers or whatever) ...but even if you don't live somewhere near where tigers live... I'm sure there's something we can do to help and prevent them from becoming extinct! they're such beautiful creatures!! we should try to save them. Before I saw this movie I heard that it was crap... I didn't bother to see it when it was out in the cinema but today it was on TV so I wanted to see what it was about... I am SO glad that I saw this movie... I loved it... I wish that everyone could see this movie, and see how special it is. ~animal/tiger lover~
