A mighty leopardess rules over an area along Zambia's Luangwa River. She has just given birth to two cubs and faces the challenging task of motherhood including feeding the cubs and defending her territory. In the process, one of the cubs is lost, but she forges on as a devoted mom to her other blue-eyed cub.
A confident and powerful leopardess called Olimba rules over an exceptionally large area along Zambia's Luangwa River. She is a formidable hunter, a courageous ruler and a devoted mother. She has just given birth to two tiny cubs, and as she faces the challenging task of motherhood, it is a constant battle to hunt successfully, to defend her prime territory and to protect her cubs against enemies. One day, Olimba discovers a nomadic male leopard near her cubs, and without hesitation, she attacks him. He makes a lucky escape, but when Olimba returns to the den, one of her cubs is gone. As she comes to terms with her loss, Olimba forges on as a devoted mother and passes on all her knowledge to her blue-eyed boy, named Makumbi. When he is one year old and succeeds in hunting his own prey, Olimba must part ways with her son. Their final hostile encounter leaves the youngster vulnerable with a dreadful eye injury. Will his resilience and fighting spirit help him overcome this injury?
