If you’re looking for fast-paced family adventure, consider this: in the time it takes to read this, a cheetah can go from 0 to 60 MPH! Carroll Ballard (The Black Stallion, Fly Away Home) directs the exciting story of 12-year-old Xan (Alexander Michaletos), who decides to return the cheetah he raised from a cub to the wild instead of allowing pursuers to place it in captivity. Harsh South African landscapes, stalking lions, crocodiles, river rapids and a mysterious drifter (Eamonn Walker) who may intend to turn the big cat in for cash – all will test Xan’s courage and resolve. Join him in this tale of growing up and letting go. It’s a journey you won’t want to miss.
