The story of Suki (Kate Winslet), a lioness cub, who rebels against her mother and her pride to mate with an unsuitable lion from the other side of the river. Her journey to less than a comfortable environment teaches her much. She re-crosses the river to defend her pride from invading wanderers led by her former suitor.
Did You Know?
After Fleck's mother is killed, he is referred to throughout the film as an orphan. In fact, one of the adult males in the pride would have been his father. He, Linus and the other young males would also have left the pride at sexual maturity, not stuck around and tried to mate with the lionesses (as Fleck tries to do with Suki), who would be their relatives.

No, Fleck! On our own, we sparkle, but together we really shine.
