The film is about an orphaned elephant named Shaba who arrived traumatized after poachers killed her mother in front of her. It took weeks for the Reteti team to forge a connection with her. Shaba became the matriarch of the entire orphaned herd. She became instrumental at the sanctuary, caring for each new orphan that arrived and teaching the keepers how to be better caretakers.
