Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham narrates this installment of Nature following a baby humpback whale during her first year of life. The first order of business for the newborn whale is to learn survival skills needed to persevere during the grueling journey from Hawaii to the southeast coast of Alaska, where mother and daughter will feast on krill and work in tandem to ensure that both are well fed. When fall arrives and food supplies begin to dwindle, it's time to head back to Hawaii, the impressionable young calf observing her mother and discovering the social structures of their species along the way. Once they've returned mother and daughter will part ways, the younger whale beginning her own unique journey in the vast underwater kingdom.
