We witness the growth of an African Penguin chick from birth to adulthood.
On Southern Africa's desolate West Coast, a new born African Penguin, Lucy, struggles for her life. She has just a ten percent chance of making it to adulthood and predators constantly lie in wait. Her parents have their hands full for the next four months, feeding and protecting her and her older brother. As they return from their daily fishing expeditions rogue seals ambush their fishing parties, stealing their hard won day's catch and endangering the lives of their dependent chicks.
