In 1967, local villagers in Africa’s Equitorial Guinea captured a remarkable baby gorilla with a coat of pure white. The film tells the story of this amazing animal, from his loving upbringing by humans to his eventual death from skin cancer in 2003. It also tracks the revolutionary changes in our understanding of how best to care for gorillas that have taken place during Snowflake’s lifetime.
