In the ever-lasting circle of life it’s all animals' most important task to create new life to ensure the survival of the species. But as the job isn’t done with giving birth, parents need to be inventive in securing the well-being of the next generation. Dangers for the young are manifold, but so are the counter-strategies. While some fish have evolved to produce an enormous amount of quickly independent eggs to increase the survival rate, other animals like the golden eagle dedicate full attention to their only child. This documentary offers both heartwarming and breathtaking insights into animal nurseries and how parents do whatever it takes.
