Yonatan Nir and Dani Menkin's documentary chronicles world-renowned wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum's has one final photographic dream remaining - to photograph a Polar Bear underwater while swimming alongside it. The Israeli-born Nachoum has earned great renown for his photos, which have appeared in such publications as National Geographic, Time, Life, The New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, and many others. The documentary showcases numerous examples of his stunning work, including breathtaking photos of sharks, whales, crocodiles, and more. The film follows Amos in the Canadian Arctic, as he prepares for his ultimate challenge. As the journey unfolds, so does an intimate and painful story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption.
