To photograph some of the most fearsome creatures on Earth, Amos Nachoum has gone face to face with anacondas, giant leopard seals, great white sharks, orcas, and crocodiles. But at age 65, Nachoum, one of the greatest underwater photographers of all time, is about to face his ultimate challenge: photographing a polar bear, up close, without any protection. A native of Israel, he served his country in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. This experience shaped and devastated him, leading him to emigrate to the United States, where he became a world-famous adventure guide and eventually an even more famous photographer. As he prepares for his biggest mission, in the Canadian Arctic, Nachoum faces his past traumas in an intimate story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption.

"A riveting tale of an adventure on the edge of the world, which does what some of the best documentaries do: introduce us to a unique world that we knew little about." Stephen Silver, Broad Street Review
