United States Premiere A Gabonese tribal queen, played by popular singer Patience Dabany, hopes to recover a sacred necklace that belonged to her ancestors. The necklace will restore harmony and prosperity to her people, but is in the hands of a French collector.  Meanwhile, a Gabonese ecologist is working to reintroduce lions into his country, while a young circus orphan refuses to abandon the lion he was raised with. The ancestral necklace and the noble lion intertwine the destinies of these three separate lives, as they return from France to their rightful home in the breathtakingly scenic Gabonese forests.
