When the Lion King Mufasa’s heir is born, he is called Simba. Already in his childhood the kid falls a victim to intrigues of his uncle Scar, dreaming of power. Simba learns of the grief of loss, treachery and exile, but eventually finds loyal friends and his love. Tempered by tests, in a hard fight he wins the lawful place in ‘Life’s circle’, having realized what it means to be a real King.
