Siblings Keith Coogan and Lucy Deakins are visiting Kenya during a summer break, to be with their parents. They make friends with Masai boy Colin Mothupi and rescue a cheetah kit. Just before they go back, locals steal the cheetah for racing. After they return to the US, they decide to go back and rescue the animal.
There's little unlikely in this story except for them getting back to Kenya. Director Jeff Blyth has a specialty in documentary work. This is his only foray into fiction features, and it is a handsome Young Adult film, with some fine wildlife footage. It's an old-fashioned G-rated story, suitable for showing to young children when they're not up to the thrills and fears of classic Disney animation.
