For city dwellers drowned in asphalt, the beach is an ultimate horizon. But it is also a meeting place for open sea species. If it is a place of wonder for Man, it is also the scene of conflicts with the animal realm. The intensification of tourism, intensive fishing and even the development of agrofuel has an impact on marine animals. For the second opus in the series, the director pursues her investigation of the conflict between man and animal; this time by exploring emblematic or unknown species of the French littoral (seals, puffins, Mediterranean dolphins, pink flamingos).
