The series consists of three episodes, each one showcasing the unique flora and fauna of a different region of Sri Lanka. In the first episode, viewers are taken to the Central Highlands, home to the country's vast tea plantations, colonial history, and the majestic Sri Lankan elephant. The second episode explores the Yala National Park, the second-largest national park in Sri Lanka, home to the elusive leopard, sloth bear, and a myriad of bird species.

He introduces viewers to the people who call Sri Lanka home, and their interaction with the creatures that share their land.
