In this new family masterpiece, Athena is a mother elephant who will do everything in her power to protect her herd. When the herd are forced to leave their watering hole and make their annual trek to find a new source of water, the entire ecosystem within which they live comes alive. But will the elephants make it? And at what cost? Through the power of unbelievably beautiful photography, this epic journey, narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor, takes audiences across the African savannah, and into the heart of this elephant family. A tale of love, loss and coming home.
