Anna Breytenbach has dedicated her life to what she calls ‘interspecies communication’. She sends detailed messages to animals through pictures and thoughts. She then receives messages of remarkable clarity back from the animals. Anna can feel the scars hidden under a monkey’s fur. She can understand the detailed story that is causing a bird’s trauma. She transforms a deadly snarling leopard into a relaxed content cat. The whole animal kingdom comes alive in a way never seen before - wild birds land on her shoulders, fish gather around her when she swims, and wild unfamiliar baboons lie on her body as if she is one of their own. This documentary explores the art of animal communication.
