Misrepresented, maligned and on the verge of extinction, the great white shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear.

The film concentrated on key aggregation points around the world: Mexico, South Africa, Los Angeles and New Zealand. Key figures in the history of shark research, people whose lives have been changed by contact with the great white, tell us of their experiences, culminating in a direct encounter between man and shark.
