“Fight for family”

Copyrighted, Universal Pictures

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A father and his two teenage daughters find themselves hunted by a massive rogue lion intent on proving that the Savanna has but one apex predator.

A recently widowed husband returns to South Africa, where he first met his wife, on a long-planned trip with his two teenage daughters to a game reserve managed by an old family friend and fellow wildlife biologist. Soon, however, a ferocious, man-hunting lion begins attacking them and devouring anyone in its path. Their journey of healing turns into a fight where their resilience will be tested.”
