- Colin Stafford-Johnson is obsessed by filming tigers. “Broken Tail” was the most flamboyant tiger cub he'd ever seen. Impossibly cute, he gambolled and posed for Colin's camera through the first years of his life. But then without warning, Broken Tail disappeared. Why did this young tiger leave Ranthambhore National Park, supposedly one of India’s best-protected tiger reserves? How could he possibly have survived in rural India for perhaps a year? What does his death reveal of the fate of the world’s last tigers? On a spectacular journey across Rajasthan, Colin travels by horseback retracing Broken Tail’s last journey. This is not a wildlife film. It is about Colin’s personal pilgrimage on a trail of a tiger that captivated him and about searching for the truth behind the future of the last wild tigers in India.
