Episode InformationThis intimate film follows a pride of lions facing an upheaval that threatens their survival. A giant wild fig tree stands at the centre of a remote flood plain in north western Zambia. It marks the territory of a pride of lions who have thrived here for years. Without warning or explanation, the pride male has vanished, leaving five females and their cubs to cope alone. Sooner or later, other lions will challenge them for this prime territory with its abundant food and water. Tragedy and drama envelop the lives of the fig tree pride as they fight for survival. Against a backdrop of spectacular African scenery, the alpha female must guide her sisters and the cubs through treacherous times as two very different competing males attempt to take over the pride.
