A recitation of woes doesn't constitute a plot, and panoramic shots of migrating wildlife don't convey enough African flavor.

There is a lack of drama and telling detail. When events happen, they seem more like set pieces than part of the flow.
While Basinger admirably invests her role with deep passion and looks splendid in her Kenya khakis, the true story she stars in is disappointingly tame and dramatically inert.
Doesn't have much plot. It just sort of meanders around like a wildebeest playing Blind Man's Bluff.
