Meet Moja, a 5-month-old lion cub, and his single lioness mother Nyota. Outcasts from a pride, they live a fragile existence in the Masai Mara national reserve in Kenya. Living between neighboring pride territories, life is hard at the best of times. Food is running out and the wildebeest migration is still hundreds of miles away. Nyota must provide everything for her son, but she is low on energy and they face dangers in every direction.
