To The Journey’s End

The Life Cycle of the Atlantic Salmon

"To The Journey’s End" documents the desperate voyage of the Atlantic salmon from ocean to river and back again, driven by the desire to reproduce.

The film opens on the rugged North East coastline. It's spring and tens of thousands of seabirds have come ashore to breed. Out at sea, another great migration is also taking place - Atlantic salmon are travelling the long distance back home to breed in their native rivers in the North East of Scotland.
