Seal of Saimaa is the story of two brothers in a canoe in search of the Saimaa Ringed Seal in Finland. The brothers had grown up on the shore of Lake Saimaa but had never seen the seal themselves.

The focus of the documentary is the significance of the seal to the lake, to its inhabitants and to us, the filmmakers. What is our relationship with nature, with the lake and with its endemic, endangered inhabitant, the ringed seal? Join us for a trip deep into the beautiful nature of Lake Saimaa.
