About a 2-hour drive west of Bangkok is Wat Pa Luangta Bua, a Buddhist monastery of meditation. The monks there take their ten tigers for a walk on a leash every day. The monks celebrate the tigers as their most sacred animals, and while they cuddle and play with the cubs, they treat the grown-up animals with great respect. Tigers are one of the most endangered species in the world. Each of the few monks living in the monastery, which was declared a tiger reserve by the Thai government, takes care of one tiger, and since two tiger cubs took refuge in this isolated temple in 1998 their number has grown to ten. This documentary portrays the harmonious relationship between humans and predators without disregarding the monks' maxim that a tiger will always be a tiger. Even if it feeds from the hand, it will always be a wild animal.
