Tiger cub Kumal is entirely dependent on his mother to hunt prey. He also relies on his father for protection against intruders. Someday he will need to provide for himself, but for now, the support of his parents will do.
In the heart of India, young tiger Kumal has been banished from his home. Hungry and alone, he must develop his skills as a predator and a fighter if he has any hope of surviving. But his journey will prove to be long and dangerous, fraught with challenges from a variety of foes, including a fierce rogue male tiger and nearby villagers on an aggressive campaign to hunt him down and kill him. Follow Kumal as he runs for his life, searching to find a territory of his own as well as a mate to continue his legacy.
