Tras un largo verano durante el cual se alimentan de peces de la costa antártica, el Pingüino Emperador emprende un viaje hacia las heladas montañas donde nacieron, para llevar a cabo su complejo rito de apareamiento. Después de que la hembra pone un gran huevo, el macho lo cubre con su abdomen y se planta en el suelo durante dos meses, sin comer ni beber agua, bajo tormentas de nieve a temperaturas bajo cero, mientras las hembras regresan a la costa para recolectar alimento. Al regresar, cada hembra identifica a su macho y las crías que han estado cuidando. Este documental, más que una película educativa, es una historia de amor a la vida y a la naturaleza
