Everything began in what now felt like forever ago, far up in a valley of northern Sweden. Hommalträsk is a small village situated in the valley surrounded by wilderness. In this village, Hedda Tiger was born on a farm with milk cows, which she considers her friends. Her deep love for animals makes her take the decision to stop eating them. She goes against what is normal in that society. Hedda gets teased when she doesn’t want to kill animals. It doesn’t take long until she develops an eating disorder. She gets no help in Sweden, so her pen pal Francesca Scrofana, a nurse, suggests that she move to Sicily. Hedda does that and starts to slowly recover from her illness. In Sicily, she meets Dino Vargas, a handsome ranger, at a party. He starts to court her, and she finds it hard to resist him. It turns out that they have a lot in common, and thanks to him, her secret dream to work as a ranger comes true. Together they try to save the raptors from being killed, and it takes them on adventures where their lives are threatened. They ask God and the virgin Mary for help, but no one knows if they will survive.
