Its about a Lion called Christian and the guys that raised him. Back in the late 60's two guys, John Rendall and Ace Bourke purchased a lion. Back

basement of a furniture shop in Chelsea (London), he ate at restaurants, played outside and was pretty much loved by everyone that had the oppurtunity
to meet him.
