Endangered African species such as elephants, rhinos and lions quickly come closer being completely extinct each year as human greed and negligence leads to the devastating decline of these majestic animals. Trophy investigates the industry of big-game hunting, in addition to breeding and wildlife conservation.
Through the eyes of the individuals who drive these industries - from a Texas-based trophy hunter to the world's largest private rhino breeder in South Africa - the film grapples with the consequences of imposing economic value on animals. What are the implications of treating animals as commodities? Do breeding, farming and hunting offer some of the few remaining options to conserve our endangered animals? What is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world.
