From a tiny mountain stream to the open estuary, the Loire river reveals many faces along its 1000 km course. Now better protected than ever, its banks are seing the return of several species long disappeared, such as the beaver or the stork, but also newcomers like the catfish or the coypu.

During springtime, floods become essential to life as well as extremely destructive. Will the kingfishers and bee-eaters be able to lay eggs without seeing their burrows inundated? Will the shrews and beavers find new territories when the water level finally drops?

This film unveils one of the last wild river through the lives that populate its shores and waters.
