Two species of seals breed on the coasts of Iceland. Sequences include a rarely witnessed birth of a seal pup. The seals are filmed both on land and beneath the surface. We witness their astonishing hardiness during the long, cold winters. Of special interest is the close proximity of the seals to the camera and their interaction with the filming crew.
