US PREMIERE All over the world, people save animals that were bred, abused or sold on the black market. This film takes us inside several sanctuaries for dogs, tigers, horses, birds and other animals. We see how much the animals give back to their caregivers. Woven into the narrative is a beautifully animated fable, narrated by the legendary Vanessa Redgrave, about a wounded crane, saved by peasants, that tries to express her gratitude with a gift. As the film unfolds, we wonder, who is saving whom?
