The astonishing true story of a zoo-born lion's journey from the pet department of Harrods, London, to freedom in the wilds of Africa. Motivated by compassion, his owners, Ace Bourke and John Rendall, team up with Born Free legends, Bill Travers, Virginia McKenna and George Adamson and set about returning Christian the Lion to his natural habitat in Africa.
This film charts the complete story from fashionable London via Bill and Virginia's home in the Surrey Hills, to a life with wildlife in Kenya, under the watchful eye of lion-man, George Adamson. It includes the YouTube phenomenon 'The Reunion', seen by more than 50 million people worldwide. After four generations in captivity, Christian proves that lions are born to be free.
Be prepared for laughter and tears in this tale of heart-break, joy and ultimate triumph over adversity. Simply one of the greatest wildlife films you are ever likely to see.
