A thrilling expedition on board of the gigantic inflatable research station !
The gigantic inflatable research station for studying the canopy is off again on an expedition on the island of Madagascar. About fifty scientists from around the world meet at the top of the trees in one of the last virgin forests of our planet, to conduct in-depth research on the extremely rich flora and fauna of this region. Shooting at night and high-wire acrobatics are necessary to follow as closely as possible the research team at work. Aloft in a dirigible, on board a strange inflatable sled, or atop a modulated structure, they initiate us into the mysteries of a unique eco-system which must be preserved for the future of our environment.
