The return of the beavers is one of the greatest success stories of nature conservation in Germany. Hunted for a long time and almost exterminated, today more than 35.000 beavers live in Germany again – and the trend is rising. But how did this happen? One gets to see the mostly nocturnal animals only rarely. Klaus Weißmann has spent more than two years tracking down the shy beavers and documenting their spread in Germany. Which ways do they use? What dangers are they exposed to? Step by step, this film tells the exciting and sometimes odd success story of the likeable rodents.
