Unthinkable. Unimaginable. Nearly unbelievable, but they are real. Lions that hunt along the ocean... The mystical shore of the Skeleton Coast, spanning hundreds of miles where the Namib blows into the Atlantic, is the backdrop of a story as surprising as it is inspiring: a true-life drama about resilience and survival, a coming- of-age story about three wild orphaned desert lion cubs in one of the deadliest places on Earth. Documented over the course of seven years, thanks to the groundbreaking work of scientist Dr Philip Stander, we follow their astonishing journey, from their first unsteady steps in the heart of the desert, all the way to the hostile shores of the Skeleton Coast.
