Caught on tape in Africa’s wild Serengeti is a stunning act of violence between two top predators.  Three cheetahs are brutally attacked by two male lions — the first time an attack like this has ever been filmed.  Now, filmmaker Leo Kuenkel, who witnessed the attack, is trying to make sense of it.  Was this a once-in-a-lifetime “perfect storm” event?  Or do these iconic African cats have a deep-set, sinister reason to fight to the death?  Joining forces with world-renowned lion expert Craig Packer, they put the best scientific theories to the test, going frame by frame through the footage of this extraordinary fight.  Along the way, unfold stunning revelations about the dark relationship between lions and cheetahs, and perhaps finally explain this great wildlife mystery.
