Summary, etc.: "The jungles of Madagascar are the only place on earth where ring-tailed lemurs still roam free. The Nature film team follows four mothers as they care for infants that are in a critical stage of development. Drought, disease, predators and natural selection threaten the young lemurs. A lemur's tale relates the bittersweet tale of baby ring-tailed lemurs, including an unusual, rarely ever seen, near-albino infant named "Sapphire," learning to survive in their treetop homes. Some leap exuberantly into adulthood. Others, including "Sapphire," cannot overcome group exclusion and the dangers that wait in the forest"--Container.
