Their film chronicles the personal sacrifices and challenges faced by a New York writer who dedicates his time and resources to rescuing endangered turtles. You can read a full synopsis of the film and learn more about the subject and the journey these filmmakers took with him here.

As usual, the PBS website has done a wonderful job of not only dispensing information on the film. They provide interested viewers with special features like video conversations with the filmmakers, an extensive resources page with links to information about the sea turtles, endangered species, environmental activism, guides for educators and lesson plans designed to be used in the classroom in conjunction with the film.
