Germany's new Wilderness

In densely populated and highly industrialized Germany, a new wilderness is emerging on former lignite opencast mines and military training areas. The film captures cranes and wolves, observes their daily lives and their encounters with other species. Small wonder that wild wolves first appeared in these parts of Germany. The film leads through all seasons into the new wilderness with its extraordinary habitats, its special fauna and flora.
