Become part of a close-knit family of African elephants in this moving chronicle of life among these powerful, socially sophisticated animals. Filmed with the assistance of veteran zoologist and leading elephant expert Iain Douglas-Hamilton, the intimate daily lives of elephants are glimpsed through the eyes of a wise, old bull (voiced by Avery Brooks). On-location in Africa's spectacular wilds, you'll witness breathtaking encounters with deadly predators and the ferocious drama of young males battling for dominance. Experience the thrill of an enraged matriarch's heart-stopping charge and the near-human behavior of herd members consoling a grief-stricken mother mourning her lost calf. Then, embark with your elephant family on a desperate cross-country migration, with the herd's survival hanging in the balance.
