When Dr. Shelley Lynch, a highly regarded mental health counselor, was forced to directly confront the reality of her husband’s sudden death, she heard a voice. That voice was her late husband Roy, letting her know she had a very special mission, to go out and get herself a camera and start taking pictures. She had no idea at the time what journey of self-discovery the camera would take her on. With Roy by her side and an open heart, the film explores the magical connection Shelley has with these unique creatures that inspire millions. The film dives into how their bonds were formed and how it has impacted her life in amazing ways.
