"The stars of the film are so entertaining... Sometimes all you need are otters."
-Peter Hartlaub, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
A storm grows, a sea otter pup is separated from her mother, and a young woman bound for adventure blows into town. On a wild, windswept beach these lives collide and an entire species' survival gets personal. Through Katie's eyes you will see our playful pup, otter number 501, get an amazing second chance at life in the wild. As the two learn to navigate the opportunities and risks of life without anchor we see the incredible efforts have undertaken to return sea otters from the brink of extinction.
