With the northern white rhino species on the brink of extinction, two ranger recruits are
mentored by a seasoned ranger with an unorthodox approach to caring for the last northern
white rhino male – “Sudan.” Spanning over the course of the recruits’ first four years on the job,
KIFARU allows viewers to experience the joys and pitfalls of conservation firsthand through the
lens of the men that look into the eyes of extinction on a daily basis.
Journeying beyond the global headlines that have accumulated around Sudan’s life and
explores the painful emptiness of extinction. Teetering on borrowed time and with his health in
decline, Sudan’s looming death hangs over the heads of the caretakers’ lives. Their only hope
to save the species that they love and the means for their mutual survival is a last resort DNA
cloning experiment.
