While visiting Calcutta, a five-year-old boy becomes separated from his family. After quite a bit of wandering, he finds a home with an Australian couple who give him a loving home. Though he grows up happy with them, he still thinks of the parents that he left behind. As an adult, he decides to undertake an epic quest in order to find the family that he left behind long ago.

May 4, 2017

Every year, thousands of emperor penguins make an astonishing journey to breed their young. They are birds, but they do not fly. They are aquatic animals, but this time they will not swim. Instead, they walk -- marching day and night in single file 70 miles into the darkest, driest and coldest continent on earth. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, March of the Penguins is an amazing, awe-inspiring, all-ages, true-life tale touched with humor and alive with thrills. Breathtaking photography captures the transcendent beauty and staggering you-are-there drama of devoted parent penguins who, in the face of the fierce polar winter, take turns guarding their egg and trekking to the ocean in search of food. Predators hunt them, storms lash them. But the safety of the adorable, fuzzy chicks makes it all worthwhile. So follow the leader ... to adventure!

It is the perspective of Patrick, a man in his thirties asking himself "what am I chasing?" Caught in the spiral of overconsumption, Patrick does nothing with his own happiness in mind. He solely wishes others to envy what he has, but life soon catches up to him and reminds him he has become something other than what he wanted.
