The adventures of two wildlife trackers.
When Alex’s grandfather shoots a lion dead, the young white boy is deeply traumatized and finds himself dreaming of the untamed African bush as a way of escaping his own dysfunctional home. Years later, as he finally begins his dream job as a young safari guide, Alex is partnered with wildlife tracker Renias Mhlongo – a mysterious and alluring man with a powerful connection to his ancient Shangaan culture and a deep instinctual knowledge of the natural world.
Their relationship is tenuous at best. Set against the backdrop of their racially divided histories, a language barrier, their age difference, and the deep-seated resentment that comes with cultural misunderstanding and historical pain, the mismatched pair must find a way to communicate, to bond, and to trust one another in order to literally walk with leopards, and survive.
