Plot – Ethan Powell is a renowned naturalist locked up in the Miami University department of psychiatry and accused of a series of brutal murders. Powell has voted to silence and no one understands him, so the case is then entrusted to a young psychiatrist, Theo Caulder, who visits Ethan every day and teases him to cause some reactions. As Ethan starts talking, he embarrasses Theo. After a fight with other patients, the director of the department invites Theo to leave the task, but the psychiatrist involves Lynn, Ethan's daughter, and the man revisits the period he spent in Rwanda, when he used to live with gorillas. When some hunters came and stormed a family of gorilla, the naturalist killed the men in turn as Ethan considered the animals his own family. The confession makes him calmer and now he's ready to stand the trial.

“Freedom is not just a dream. It's there, on the other side of those fences we build all by ourselves.”
“We have only one thing to give up. Our dominion. We don't own the world. We're not kings yet. Not gods. Can we give that up? Too precious, all that control? Too tempting, being a god?”
