In a landscape where rain is rare, violent and short-lived, Africa's big cats lead a predictable life, masters of the dry terrain to which they are adapted. But then, for eight intense weeks, violent storms transform their world, shattering their routine. They do not have the luxury to wait out the rain. They must hunt or starve. While the risk of death is as high as ever, so too is opportunity for those that seize it. Storm Cats is an intimate portrayal of leopards, lions and cheetahs pushed to the edge by nature s raw power. Only those that can adapt will survive.
