In 1927, Henry Williamson wrote Tarka the Otter, about the life and death of an otter in Devon. This film goes in search of Tarka's descendents. Do they still fish the same pools as their forebears? Williamson's otters were treated as vermin and were trapped and hunted for sport. Today the otter is an endangered species and our attitude towards it has changed. Do the lives of modern otters reflect this shift? Combining well-loved fiction with modern-day fact, this film contrasts the dramatic events of the novel with actual events from a modern otter's life.
