One of the world’s top wildlife photographers, Cyril Ruoso, is partnered up with two scientific journalists for an adventurous journey through three of the most extreme ecosystems on our planet: the impenetrable rainforest of the Amazon, the skyscraping glaciers of the Andes, and the desert plains of the Pacific Coast of Peru.

As they follow the water cycle from East to West, we are given a unique opportunity to discover stunning landscapes and a rich diversity of animal and plant life which have managed to adapt to conditions of extreme heat, humidity, altitude, cold, or drought.

During their search for rare and uncommon species, they meet with scientists and discover what links all three ecosystems together. Finally, they understand the need to preserve them when climate change and human activity are threatening their very existence.
