Among the mountain gorillas of Rwanda, Titus reigns as king, a position he gained with extraordinary courage, strategy and determination. The record of his life began when Dian Fossey, the famed primatologist, introduced a young researcher named Kelly Stewart to the gorillas. Stewart, daughter of film star James Stewart, was there to make the very first journal entry about young Titus, meeting and naming him in August of 1974, when he was just two days old. In the decades that followed, he was orphaned and abandoned, survived murderous poachers, and the deadly challenge of his rivals. His triumphant story is recounted by researchers and conservationists as they share their memories and archival footage of Titus, from his days as a newborn to his rise to power as a silverback.
