Storyline

Toni lives with her father, writer Matthew Martin, in the Sequoia forests of California. While walking, she finds and brings home, a small puma which she calls 'Gato' and a young fawn, called 'Malibu'. The three become friends which violates the normal rules of nature. After a few years, Toni and her dad leave and Gato and Malibu are returned to the wild. They do their animal things, but the two are still friendly. When Toni and Matthew return, they find that logging and hunting have decimated the animals in the area. They also find that their neighbor, Bergman, who has trapped animals for years, is now leading hunting parties and kills even the fawns. It is up to Gato and Malibu if they are to survive.

Stunning animal photography
18 November 2000 | by hold2fileSee all my reviews

This movie has some of the most stunning animal photography I have ever seen. It is amazing to get an adult male deer and bobcat to work together as well as the very impressive scenes of deer and other animals in the wild.
