Strange how things

happen...

Unplanned... By accident.

I'd been hanging around

the coast of east Africa...

Bit of work in Lamu,

a lot of surfing in Malindi...

Until the money ran out,

as it always does.

Mine was an aimless,

self-indulgent,

And undisciplined life.

I highly recommend it.

I accepted a job

as a safari driver

In the interior

near Garisa.

Steady work, decent pay,

Hot and cold running tourists,

girls I hoped.

But it was not to be.

Thank you, William.

See you next month.

He said... "Terence,

hello. How are you, how's George?"

he said, "No, I'll see the photographs

when we get back to Germany."

William, a bottle

of Red Label, please.

Are you Johnny Maxwell?

I might be.

Might?

Well, I am

Tony Fitzjohn.

You got a job for me

driving your next safari.

I've been waiting

all day.

Ah, yes.

I'm afraid the job's gone.

You were supposed

to be here yesterday.

Listen, I said

I was coming.

I told you that, right?

I hire reliable men.

When I say 12:
00 noon,

I don't mean the next day.

What the hell

are you talking about, man?

I spent my last 20 shillings

Coming up to

this shithole town

For your asshole job.

Well, that's just the point.

It's not an "asshole job".

But if it were

an asshole job,

You'd fit the bill.

Thank you.

Hey! Hey, wait!

- Hey, gimme a lift!

- Jump on!

Thanks.

Don't suppose you're headed

for Mombasa, mate?

Other way.

Thought I had

a job back there, but, um...

By the way,

my name's Terence.

I'm Tony...

Tony Fitzjohn.

Going to

my brother's place.

He might have work.

There's a recent opening.

Yeah?

I've got nothing to lose.

Somalis?

Shifta bandits.

Deserters from

the wars up north.

It's rare to see them

this far south.

I've got a man

to replace Stanley.

His name's Fitzjohn.

Hello.

Adamson.

George Adamson.

Welcome to Kora.

Arethi...

One more for dinner.

So, um...

What exactly is it

you do out here?

That is what I do.

My lions.

A wild lion.

It's too soon.

It's

too soon.

Bloody lions.

We're eating dinner,

for heaven's sake.

I tell you, on the day when

they finally eat George,

And I take over this place,

We're going to get rid

of every blessed lion.

Then I'll bring in

elephants.

Mmm, the elephant.

Now there is an animal.

Come on.

Come on, boy.

Well done.

You did well.

You fought well.

You were very, very brave.

You know, Terence,

He fought the wild lions

face to face.

Yes.

That's when we knew that

Elsa was ready to be released.

Elsa? Elsa the lion?

Lioness, actually.

Of course, born free's

George Adamson.

And your wife...

Joy.

Elsa was the first lion

that we released,

And then we released

all the lions from the film.

Couldn't bear to send them

back to zoos or circuses.

And then people

began to send them to us

From all over the world.

What we do here

is we prepare them

To go back

into the wild.

He was sent to us

a little cub.

Well, I don't know

what use I can be here.

We'll have to

wait and see.

In the meantime,

100 shillings a day,

Plus room and board.

Okay?

I'm coming.

I've always

tried to be open

To what fate brings along,

And it turned out to be

a pretty good policy.

So I took the job with

the two crazy old brothers,

Stuck out there

in the middle of the bush,

Learning more than

I ever wanted to know

About their daily habits.

Good boy.

George had rehabilitated

more than 30 lions

Born in captivity.

He taught them how to survive

as wild animals...

To live

as they were meant to.

That's a boy.

The kudu tracks.

He found the scent.

Kudu, kudu.

Good boy.
