A bridge engineer and an experienced old hunter begin a hunt for two lions after they start attacking local construction workers.
During the man-eater scourge at Tsavo, one young engineer was killed when a lion leapt through a screen window and into the railway carriage in which he had been sleeping. The lion dragged the body away and it was found the next morning. This ... ...
This is the most famous and true African adventure.
In reality, Patterson killed both lions himself. The great white hunter Remington is complete fiction, and no one like that was ever present in Tsavo during the time the events took place.
The beginning of the end credits is shown with a photograph of the real bridge as background.
