Based on the true story of young anthropologist Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) who travels to the African mountains to study the rare gorillas. In this incredible paradise which she describes as being "as close to God as you can get," her interest in the gorillas turns to passion and finally obsession. Not even her lover, photographer Bob Campbell (Bryan Brown), can tear her away - or stop her from risking her life to protect the gorillas from poachers and animal traders. Desperate to save her "family" from extinction. Fossey searches for justice, but in the end settles for revenge.
