Jaf Amos Nachoum is one of the greatest underwater photographers of all time. He calls himself a "soldier of Mother Nature" who is dedicated to "the beauty of life, rather than the misery." Fascinated by the most fearsome creatures on Earth, he has developed a unique approach that puts him face-to-face with his subjects without any protection. He swam with crocodiles and killer whales, with anacondas and great white sharks, but one major predator has always eluded him—the polar bear. Determined to give it one last shot, we follow Amos to the freezing waters of the Canadian Arctic as he prepares for his ultimate challenge. Includes spectacular images of undersea life.
