This documentary follows the mating and migration patterns of the emperor penguin. Each autumn, the penguins mate in the cold oceans, then clamber onto the ice, trekking to the top of Antarctica. Reaching it in the dead of winter, the females lay eggs on the ice. Leaving the males to cradle the eggs, the females go on a desperate hunt for food. The males cannot let the eggs sit on the ice or the embryos will freeze. They wait for the females’ return. The eggs hatch. The females return, switching roles with the males. Their starved mates go hunting. The spring thaw makes hunting increasingly treacherous. Ultimately, the surviving chicks become strong enough to make the journey back to the ocean and the cycle continues!
