It's the beginning to the end....
28 December 2019 | by ks-60500See all my reviews

Extinct rare whale rescues documentary. It makes us aware the dark side of bad money business and I love the conclusion at the end. It's very true what human being did to end our planet by all means for money. We should treasure our planet and Always - no demand, no supply.
