"Durant treize étés, sans aucune arme, Timothy Treadwell a vécu au milieu des redoutables grizzlys sauvages d'Alaska. Lors de ces cinq dernières saisons, ce militant écologiste a tourné des images exceptionnelles de ces prédateurs, tout en se mettant lui-même en scène. En octobre 2003, on découvre que lui et sa compagne ont été dévorés... Werner Herzog ('Aguirre la colère de Dieu', 'Fitzcarraldo') explore le mystère de ce personnage controversé. Une expérience inoubliable." [Source : jaquette]
