Zashchitnik (The Protector) is a portrait of Pavel Fomenko, a man who has dedicated his life to tiger conservation. The risks of death are numerous; freezing cold temperatures, dangerous poachers, and wild predators. His only hope for survival is to think and live like the animal he's sworn to protect, the enigmatic Amur tiger.
