After losing part of his leg in a shark attack, cameraman Henri Bource returns to the water six weeks after his savage brush with death. He is determined to find out more about sharks and dispel some of the myths abut these undersea creatures. His bloody attack and rescue is shown in gory graphic detail, including the race to the hospital as he struggles to survive. A shark is dissected after capture to reveal what food sources the creature covets. This color documentary was shot in the waters of Australia where there are more sharks and shark attacks that anywhere else in the world.
