About the film
Irish cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson spent almost 600 days filming Broken Tail and his family. As the story came to life, Broken Tail proved to be the most charismatic tiger cub Colin had ever seen in Ranthambhore, one of India's premier wild tiger reserves. Impossibly cute, he posed for Colin's camera through the first years of his life. Then without warning, Broken Tail disappeared, abandoning his sanctuary to go on the run, disappearing into the wilds of rural India for almost a year. He was barely three and it raised the key question - why did this young tiger leave Ranthambhore National Park, one of India's best-protected tiger reserves? On a spectacular odyssey across Rajasthan, Colin travels by horseback retracing Broken Tail's last journey, gathering clues, exploring why he abandoned his home and above all, revealing important truths about India's last wild tigers.
