"As its narrative gently unfolds, Return of the Plankton reveals to us that the sea itself has its seasons and undergoes changes as remarkable and beautiful as those more familiar to those of us who live on land.  The delicacy of its images will inspire wonder in viewers of any age and calls on all of us to protect this usually hidden world."
