Two lioness sisters raise their young cubs in Serengeti amongst the abundance of the great herd migrations. But when the lean season arrives, the lionesses have no other option but to prey on the cattle of the Omosoka family, who live in the village bordering Serengeti. The attacks divide the family. Rugari wants to poison and kill the lions, but his daughter Nyange will do everything in her power to save them.
