In an environment equally as harsh as it is beautiful, be immersed in a classic coming-of-age tale guided by one of Australia’s most unique, intelligent, and playful animals. Take an intimate journey inside the colony where a life of great intimacy, tenderness, and clumsiness must often give way to a life of great sacrifice and bravery.
