In the late seventies, as a novice in a wildlife park, a nineteen-year-old is asked to hand raise a baby otter for the title role in the film version of Tarka. At the start life hangs by a thread but gradually an exceptional bond is forged. Living and working together the pair become accustomed to each other's world - from the busy motorways and London underground to wind swept dunes and the swirling river Torridge. This is a humorous and expansive real-life story about our native wild animals coexisting in extraordinary proximity to people. There is an undercurrent of awakening from beginning to end, not only to the history in the landscape and the origins of Tarka in the First World War, but also the vision of nature so richly engraved in Henry Williamson's classic.
