The short is 14 minutes and there's no narration, so it does require attention span:

It's about the nutrient cycle in Alaska, including the Jekyll-and-Hyde life and afterlife of wild salmon, by filmmaker Paul Klaver – the best thing since Radiolab’s poetic piece on the afterlife of whales

Pair with Jon Mooallem’s moving meditation on wildlife.
