Follow one newborn elephant calf from her birth on the African savannah, to her first days with the herd, feeding, playing in the waterholes and meeting other young elephants. Then see the young elephant developing and growing, until she is able to survive without her mother in her challenging African habitat, playing her part in the life of the herd until she is ready to have a calf of her own.
