Christmas balls, tinsels in the trees and some improbable snow on the ground. This is the unexpected setting for this wildlife film shot in southern Africa during the Christmas period.
This is December 25, and everyone has a birth to celebrate. The savannah is full of animals about to give life or who have just done so. Everywhere, it is all about family reunions, banquets and festive menus. Frogs, wild dogs, hyenas, lions, cheetahs and elephants share the opulence while a multitude of newborn impalas make their first steps under the stare of a leopard no one really knows if he’s ready to respect the Christmas' truce.
This original and charming documentary is a unique wildlife film with the Christmas spirit.
