World-renowned wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum has one final photographic dream remaining - to photograph a Polar Bear underwater while swimming alongside it. The film follows Amos in the Canadian Arctic, as he prepares for his ultimate challenge. As the journey unfolds, so does an intimate and painful story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption.

"תמונת חייו"

בגיל 65, בשלהי קריירה מפוארת, יוצא צלם הטבע הנודע עמוס נחום למסע אל עבר התמונה היחידה שחסרה לו.
אחרי שצילם את כל ענקי האוקיינוס הוא מתכוון לצלם הפעם, במישורים האינסופיים של קנדה הארקטית, דוב קוטב צולל, פנים אל פנים וללא אמצעי הגנה.
בעבר ניסה לצלם את התמונה הזו וכמעט נטרף, אבל משהו דוחף אותו לנסות לעשות זאת שוב.
