On a beach in Patagonia a large bull elephant seal presides over his harem of one hundred and twenty females. His job is to protect his cows and control the borders of his harem from male intruders. As the season progresses and the beach turns into a massive maternity ward, the beach master finds it increasingly difficult to maintain control. Witness birth, death, and high drama during one breeding season on the Valdes Peninsula, which sees wife abduction, baby abandonment and an orca attack.
