Retrace the life of photographer Bruno Zehnder devoted to capture the beauty of the white continent. His passion led to his tragic death in a violent snow storm while taking these "Final" shots. Having devoted a large part of his life to the white continent, photographer Bruno Zehnder decided to return once more, to capture shots of Emperor penguins enduring the hostile Arctic blizzard. He freezes to death in a violent snow storm while taking these "Final" shots. His body is found two days later, lying next to "his" animals a mile away from the camp. His passion was such that he even changed his middle name to Penguin. His numerous stay in Antarctica with the help from the Russians as much as the Americans even triggered accusations of spying. An intense and complex character, driven by the passion for the white continent and its fellow Emperor penguins.
