The Snake and Mongoose Chronicles: Episode 1
Valerie is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter, but her parents have arranged for her to marry another man – who is wealthy. Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter plan to run away together when they learn that Valerie’s older sister has been killed by a werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon, to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon’s arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them.
Born to Be Wild observes various orphaned jungle animals and their day-to-day behavioural interactions with the individuals who rescue them and raise them to adulthood. The film unfurls in two separate geographic spheres. Half of it takes place in the rain forests of Borneo, where celebrated primatologist Dr. Birute Galdikas assists baby orangutans; the other half takes place on the arid savannahs of Kenya, where zoologist Dame Daphne Sheldrick works with baby elephant calves.
After witnessing an older version of herself committing suicide, Mia (Jodie Whittaker) attempts to rewrite history and thereby avert this tragic fate. She travels back in time, exploring dark secrets and lashing out against handsome Ludwig (Dougray Scott), the root of her problems. Directed by Dana Lustig, this Kafkaesque romantic thriller also stars David Warner, Emilia Fox, Chris Wilson and Allan Corduner.
