To give life, some female sharks go on long journeys. Journeys during which they will risk their lives. They will have to navigate the vastness of the ocean, feed themselves, find a mate, form alliances, escape their predators and sometimes humans.
Thus, the young hammerhead shark takes us from the Galapagos archipelago to various islands along Costa Rica and Colombia. The oldest cetacean crosses the Pacific for the last time to give birth, and a female great white dog in exile leaves the coast of South Africa to reach Australia.
Their odysseys are an opportunity to discover the large family of sharks, which consists of more than 400 species. The fastest shark, the king of illusion, the cleaner of the sea, they are all different, all with abilities honed by millions of years of evolution.
We discover sensitive and fragile animals, far from the caricature made of them by Hollywood. The danger to humans is quite different: sharks are seriously threatened, and with them the balance of the oceans.

This film tells the story of an adventure that lasted more than three years around the world. A crazy bet of a film crew and scientists trying to uncover the secrets of sharks.
They had to overcome enormous challenges in terms of imaging, technology and scientific information to access these sharks. How not to scare the hammerhead shark? How to protect yourself from a white shark? How to track a giant cetacean?
Pauline and Frédéric, the directors, and Alexandre, the producer, teamed up with specialist cameramen and biologists, among the best in the world. For this occasion, they developed a unique camera prototype. A way to get unexpected images and help science.
Underwater wildlife photography, even in the tropics, is never a quiet stay…
