Young Tina lives with her mother and stepfather on a wildlife reserve in Kenya. While her stepfather believes this is a wonderful environment for her to grow up in, her mother becomes increasingly concerned by her behaviour. These concerns are reinforced when it is revealed that her daughter's best friend in the whole world is a fully grown lion. Worried that her daughter may be turning into a savage, she sends for her former husband, Tina's biological father, in the hope that he can take her back to civilization (in this case rural Connecticut). But it seems as though Tina's mother wants something more than a civilized upbringing for her daughter.Written by

King! I knew you loved me. You saw King chose me. He's mine!
[Coming to Tina]
Stay away from her. You naughty thing.
King will see me home. He really loves me.
Now your beginning to see?
If I hadn't seen it... Well, I wouldn't have believed it. It's like witchcraft.
[Riding away on King]
Now do you understand King? I don't want you to have anything more to do with that nasty lioness again. Who does she think she is?

An interesting plot, but this film's best aspects include the wonderful African scenery and wildlife, and one of the very BEST soundtracks ever set to film. As I write this, six people have voted on it, herein, and the average rating is 9.2 out of 10! Yet, this wonderful film seems to be totally unavailable on video! There's something very wrong with that! THIS film should be in the stores!!
