A Shangaan elder captivates his young listeners with an epic tale about a white lion named Letsatsi. A young Shangaan named Gisani saves Letsatsi from a hungry hyena, and discovers his destiny is to protect this rare creature at all costs.   Letsatsi matures, he learns to survive on his own, until he encounters the most dangerous predator: a human trophy hunter.  Shot on location near Johannesburg, South Africa, White Lion is awe-inspiring in its lush scenery and intimacy with wild animals.  This unique coming of age story is creatively told with an appreciation for the natural world.
