"A young boy's fascination with eels leads into the gentle exploraiton of the joys and sorrows of life and death. When the young boy grows up and become a soldier, his journey to the Great War on the other side of the world is shadowed by that of the eels, as they make their own amazing journey to their breeding grounds deep in the Pacific Ocean"
Based on the longfin eels who live at Pukaha Mount Bruce and nearby Anzac Bridge.

This true story tells how one man tried to save the takahe from extinction. In the 1950s Elwyn Welch hatched a clever plan to help breed takahe. Elywn's farm later became Pukaha Mount Bruce, New Zealand's National Wildlife Centre.
