Filmed over two years, Dogs in the Land of Lions takes us into the heart of an African Wild Dog family. When lions kill her mate, a Wild Dog mother must suddenly raise two generations of pups all on her own. In this deeply intimate portrayal of motherhood, we witness the loyalty and selflessness that sets Wild Dogs apart from other large, social carnivores. The story is loaded with the jeopardy of survival in an unforgiving wilderness, yet the young dogs provide light-hearted moments, as they discover the world around them on their journey to independence.
