Plot – In 1898 John Patterson, an engineer and designer, is sent to Africa to follow closely and quickly finish the construction of roads and connecting bridges for the transportation of goods. Shortly after arriving, he realizes that a great danger looms over the area: two ferocious lions in the throes of an uncontrollable fury occasionally come close to the workplaces and kill some workers. The natives are frightened and quickly spread the legend of the invincibility of the two animals. Patterson understands that the lions should be eliminated if he wants to change the situation, but he does not have the necessary help and so calls Remington, a known hunter of wild animals. Thus begins a battle based mainly on the firmness of nerves and accuracy of moves. The lions, nicknamed Spirit and Darkness, do not just defend themselves but take aim at the two men. Only after much effort and when Remington is killed, Patterson manages to get the better of the beasts and makes everyone understand that the macabre prophecy about the site of the massacre will not come true. But even today, Spirit and Darkness continue to power many legends in much of the African continent.
