Masai follows a group of courageous teenagers who are sent out to secure the mane of Vitchua, the fiercest of all lions, as an offering to the rain gods. Along the way, the eight boys, a shepherd who accompanies them against his father’s wishes, and an older spiritual guide battle a rival tribe and face sickness, death, thirst and starvation, but refuse to turn back.
