In 1896, engineer John Patterson (Val Kilmer) is hired to oversee the construction of a bridge at Tsavo, a vital part of the new trans-African railway. When the workers are slaughtered by two lions, whom the African workers believe to possess supernatural powers, Patterson calls in hunter Charles Remington (Michael Douglas). Together they set out to slay the fierce beasts, and complete work on the railway. Based on a true story.
