A baby harp seal is born on the frozen Arctic Ocean with only his vigilant mother to care for him. At first the pup does little more than sleep and drink his mother's milk. As he grows, however, he begins to show a little curiosity about his neighbours on the ice. But this is a harsh world. At only twelve days old, the helpless baby is about to be abandoned for good. His mother will no longer care for him. It's time for the harp seal to grow up.
