20년 동안 중앙 아프리카 Virunga산의 고릴라들과 함께 생활하며, 그들을 관찰, 보호하며 생을 마친 Dian이라는 여성에 관한 실화.
Over the years hunters, poachers, and war have killed many of the gorillas of central Africa. But there are still a few hundred living high in the mists of the Virunga Mountains. When Dian Fossey first saw a family of wild mountain gorillas in the Virungas she knew that she must help these wonderful animals. This true story tells of the twenty years she lived with them, watched them, wrote about them, and protected them. In the end, she gave her life for them.
