Take a high definition tour of the area that covers only five percent of the Earth's surface, yet serves as home to over fifty percent of its animal and plant species in this documentary exploring the mysteries of the Equator. The Equator is not only the line that divides our planet in half, but also a powerful line of life where the pace of evolution quickens. There, animals are able to breed all year round thanks to the warm and humid conditions, though their fight for survival never ceases. In this documentary, filmmakers revel how and why flora and fauna grow faster, larger, and weirder on the Equator than any other place on Earth. As the equatorial sun shines down on the ocean, moist air rises to create trade winds, and ocean currents reach out to energize life on distant areas of the planet. So come along, and chase the sun on a 40,000-kilometre adventure to some of the most extreme and ecologically diverse areas on the planet.
