Survival. Every species on earth has its strategy. And most of them rely on the egg. Sometimes in bizarre shapes, lavish in number, camouflaged or colored in a flashy way. The film tells about unusual methods and strategies in the struggle for survival: the ostrich in the Kalahari desert, the golden eagle in the Alps, the guillemot on the Faroe Islands, the pond turtle at the gates of Vienna and the ladybird in the garden – for all of them life begins in an egg.
