Description: Known mostly for being an ocean predator, the great white shark is misrepresented, misunderstood, and on the verge of extinction. This film explores the great white's place in our imaginations and in our fears while focusing on the plight of sharks around the world and the fate of sharks at the hands of the planet's greatest predator of all: humans. As the demand for shark fin soup rises, every year tens of millions of sharks are killed primarily for their fins. Some shark populations have been reduced by 99 percent, and many oceanic sharks face extinction.
