Synopsis >

This state-of-the-art movie, co-shot with the successful BBC TV series, will take us on a tour of our home as we have never seen it before. Using the sun as a guide, we set out on a truly global journey. On the way, we meet three mothers struggling to bring up their young. In the Arctic, a polar bear and her two new born cubs awaken to the first sunlight of spring. Will they find food before the ice on which they live melts? Half a world away, in the heat of Kalahari, an elephant mother and her calf find water after a danger-filled trek across the desert. But they must share the pool with a pride of lions. For the final leg of the journey, we follow a humpback whale mother. She must keep her calf safe on their 4,000 mile migration from the equator to Antarctica. And so life on Earth goes on. A story played out billions of times a day, 365 days a year, as the Earth moves through seasons, every living creature bending to the power of the sun. No film has ever captured the epic scope of the drama of an entire planet, yet told it with heart-breaking and heart-warming intimacy of real animal characters. Until now...
