"[T]his has heart, humor, thrilling adventure and stunning visuals. Set in South Africa, the cinematography is breathtaking and the action expertly directed."
Owning a pet cheetah sounds like a dream come true for a young boy seeking adventure, and for Xan (Alex Michaeletos), the South African boy whose story is told in DUMA, that dream is a reality.
Description by Warner Home Video:
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.
