The story of Dian Fossey, an American naturalist who went to central Africa in 1966 with no experience, but devoted two decades of her life to studying the mountain gorilla, and became ruthlessly determined to protect the species from poachers. Her uncompromising attitude to the gorillas' welfare made her many enemies, and her murder in 1985 has still not been adequately explained. Priceless wildlife footage, shot in the Rwandan jungle, and Weaver's rapport with the gorillas make for a unique and absorbing movie.
