Voyage of the Lonely Turtle. A story of one loggerhead turtle which makes a 9000 mile journey across the vast ocean to nest solo. She travels solo but she will not be lone as there will hammer-head sharks, squid and other dangerous predators in her path which is why the loggerhead turtle has specially adapted to defend itself with a tough shell. The real problem however is navigating the massive Pacific ocean from the coast of Mexico to a small beach in Japan, an exact location where she came from as a hatchling. The film uses fantastic underwater photography to capture this journey as never seen before.
