‘The Bitter Bond’ is an emotional animated story of a lion keeper and her cub that ends in the ultimate betrayal. Set to the famous track “Born Free” by Matt Monro, the two-minute film was designed to provoke a visceral reaction in people to encourage them to share on social media. And share they did.
