Storyline

KIFARU is a feature documentary that journeys beyond the global headlines that have accumulated around 'Sudan,' the last male northern white rhino in existence, and explores the painful emptiness of extinction through the eyes of Sudan's three primary caregivers. Teetering on borrowed time and with his health in decline, Sudan's looming death and the uncertainty of employment that it will bring hangs over the heads of our three dynamic characters. Their only hope to save the species that they love - and perhaps their livelihood - rests fully in the success of a last resort IVF experiment.
