As the lion becomes older, they feel they can no longer take care of him. Conservationist George Adamson then takes their beloved lion back into the wild. A year later, his former owners go to the jungle to see the lion they raised. But will he remember them?
The true story follows the baby lion’s life from a fashionable antique shop, Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna's home in the hills of Surrey, to a life in Africa with wild lions. Laughter and heartbreak ensue throughout this emotional film. Under the watchful eye of lion-man Adamson, it is clearly evident after watching four generations living in captivity, wild lions are born to be free.
