Hanging like an emerald jewel off the western edge of Europe, Ireland has always been a place apart. Never conquered by the Romans, Ireland was for millennia the very edge of the known world and the last stop for countless animals before they disappeared into the mists of the Atlantic ocean on their ceaseless journeys of life.
As never captured before, this film shows Ireland’s wild wonders – from breaching Humpback Whales off its southern shores, to Golden Eagles fighting the gales of the northern highlands to raise their young on precipitous cliffs, to the majestic Salmon returning from the Arctic to face upriver into the purest freshwater in Europe and a murderous gauntlet of waterfalls and fishermen. From the Red Squirrels battling back from the edge of extinction to the clash of Ireland’s last Red Deer stags echoing through the mountains of Kerry. Not to mention that off the Irish coast swarm the second largest fish in the world: over  hundred Basking Sharks have been seen in one day - the film features these gentle giants as they follow the summer plankton trail before turning west and disappearing into the abyss.
