TIGER ON THE RUN explores the life of Kumal, a young Indian tiger who is forced out of his father’s territory by a rogue male and sets out on a remarkable journey to adulthood in the wilds of central India. Time and space are running out, and to continue his legacy, he must find a territory of his own and a mate. Harassed by local villagers and hampered by his poor hunting skills, Kumal is left on the brink of starvation. He must adapt quickly to a life on his own or his very survival will be at stake.
Kumal was been banished from his home and needs to develop his skills as a predator and a fighter if he has any hope of surviving. But his journey will prove to be long and dangerous, fraught with challenges from a variety of foes. This special follows Kumal as he runs for his life, searching to find a territory of his own as well as a mate to continue his legacy.
