A tenderly moving, deeply empathetic human survival story.

Los Angeles Times

A riveting journey into the wild.

Back from war in Afghanistan, a young British soldier struggling with depression and PTSD finds a second chance in the Amazon rainforest when he meets an American scientist, and together they foster an orphaned baby ocelot. What was meant to be an attempt to escape from life, turns out to be an unexpected journey of love, the science of rewilding, and healing.

Note: Wildcat won the 2023 News & Doc Emmy for Outstanding Nature Documentary.
