A thought-provoking film about a man s mission to halt the decline in Southern Africa s leopard populations due to a widespread skin trade. Traditionally, only Zulu royals are allowed to wear leopard skins. In the last three decades, however, the Shembe Church has adopted the skins into their ceremonial costume, therefore spiking the demand. Leopard researcher Tristan Dickerson travels from the heart of leopard country to the heart of Shembe and Zulu culture in an effort to discover a solution that benefits all parties. A juncture of religion, culture and conservation.
