Plot Summary: The award-winning documentary that follows the life and migration of a loggerhead turtle from hatching to maturity and a return to its original Florida nesting grounds – 25 years later!
The loggerhead turtle, a threatened species, has one of the longest and most difficult migratory patterns of any marine animal: Sea turtles newly hatched on the East Coast of the United States (usually in Florida) make their way from the sand into the ocean, and then begin a voyage that can span the entire Atlantic Ocean, only to return decades later to that same beach.
Award-winning filmmaker Nick Stringer follows the loggerhead turtle on an adventure of more than 9,000 miles guided only by instinct. Stringer and his camera crew spent two years following loggerhead turtles on their trips across the ocean, and have captured on film the remarkable life cycle of a beautiful creature that struggles to survive in an increasingly unforgiving environment.
Narrated by Academy Award nominee Miranda Richardson.
