Henry Phibbs is an American who settles down in India due to his love for Indian wild life. He retires from the Indian Forest Department. But the government of India has something else in store for him. A tiger he had nurtured and watched as the latter grew up into a strong male has gone rogue. It is a man eater and the Indians want it killed. Unfortunately, it is the age of wildlife conservation and big game hunters have gone extinct. Except a few old men who are still alive. Henry Phibbs is one of these old men to whom the Indian government turns to for help. He is called back from retirement and is asked to kill his own baby. Will he do it?????
