A sea turtle who was hatched in 1959 spends the next 50 years traveling the world while it is being changed by global warming.
That pretty much sums up the movie on a whole. But when you break it down bit by bit you can see all the horrible things that have been happening to our environment over the years, not just by global warming but by our own human stupidity and carelessness.
Sammy goes through oil spills, trash in the water, getting caught in fishing and trapping nets not to mention dodging sharks and other predators.
The twins (3 years old) didn’t have much interest but Caitlyn (6 years old) was riveted. She was hurt and saddened at the idea of humans doing so many bad things to the turtle. She asked me why all the humans were trying to hurt him and I had to explain that not all the humans were bad but some were making bad choices. It reinforced the conversations we have had before about all of our choices having consequences sometimes we don’t notice the consequence but it is there nonetheless.
