Long before Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey started their research, Canadian biologist Ann Innis Dagg became the first person in the world to study animal behaviour in Africa. This documentary retraces the steps of her journey and the contrast between the world of giraffes she once knew and the one it has become, the factors that destroyed her career, and the forces that brought her back.
