Filmed in the midlands plains of lutruwita (Tasmania) this is the story of an unusual alignment between a farmer, a scientist and the Tasmanian Aboriginal community.

Albatross island is a magical place. 18 hectares of conglomerate rock off the northwestern tip of Tasmania is the home to 5200 breeding pairs of Shy Albatross. Harvested near to extinction in the 1800's, the population gradually recovered to half the estimated historical population size. Yet in recent years the population has again started to decline. A long-term monitoring program is overseen by marine biologist Dr Rachael Aldermen, who has been visiting the island for a decade. While there, Rachael and her small team must live in a giant cave that partially protects them from the elements. Life on the island is typically cold, often wet and always windy. This beautiful film documents the journey to a remote and beautiful corner of Tasmania, into the lives of the endemic Shy Albatross and the scientists that are working to ensure their survival.
