There are points where the lions and cheetahs face off; and young cheetahs have to learn that lions live in prides. The freedom of standing alone has its drawbacks for Sita; she has to leave her cubs alone when she hunts, risking not Child Protective Services but real predators.
I still wonder how these cats learn to accept the presence of human filmmakers. Although wild animals, they have rich lives, and seem very self-aware, with so many distinct personalities. You feel like Sita could live in your home. Viewers might want to check out the 2005 South African film "Duma" (Carroll Ballard) about a cheetah raised in a human home.
