  • Orig. Title: Catching a Lion

This film tells the unusual story of a father and son who must catch a lion to save themselves from the approaching war. While setting a trap for the lion, the father uses role-play to create an imaginary world that distracts his son from the encroaching danger. As the lion’s arrival becomes more and more imminent the father has to think fast to find a clever way of tricking the wild beast into the trap. Just as the father and son are about to come face to face with the lion, they share a unique emotional experience that just might help them defeat it. Inspired by actual events.
