A young Cro-Magnon woman is raised by Neanderthals.
At a time in prehistory when Neanderthals shared the Earth with early Homo sapiens, a band of cave-dwellers adopt blond and blue-eyed Ayla, a child of the “Others”. As Ayla matures into a young woman of spirit and courage (unlike other women of the clan), she must fight for survival against the jealous bigotry of Broud, who will one day be clan leader. Based on Jean M. Auel’s popular book, there is minimal narration; subtitles translate the Neanderthal gestures and primitive spoken language.
