Ex-zookeeper and rainforest living recluse Lewis believes, like nearly everyone else, that the legendary Tasmanian Tiger has long been extinct. But one day, on a walk through the tall gum trees, he witnesses a terrible event that will change everything: his life, the lives of those around him and the legend of Australia's pouched wolf. With the help of Angie, the wildlife artist who came into the forest to capture its treasures on canvas, Paul the country vet who shares his unhappy past and Marg, a dogged local journalist, Lewis is forced to face the challenge of engaging with humanity once again in a quest to protect a young and extraordinarily vulnerable life.
