With the threat of imminent extinction looming on their backs, two Kenyan wildlife caretakers are charged with an impossible task: protecting the last male northern white rhino in the world. Called Kifaru in Swahili, the rhino must be kept under protection around the clock or it he will be killed by the same poachers who drove the species to the brink of extinction. Tracking their first four years on the job, as the fate of an entire species hangs in the balance, this urgent and incisive film conveys real-time extinction.
