Summary

Documentary revealing how the changing position of the sun over the course of a day affects the behaviour of animals and plants across the planet. From the moment it rises, animals are waiting, ready to take advantage of the opportunities that the sun creates, from the chameleon that uses solar power to survive to a family of lemurs enjoying the early morning heat. However, sunlight also plunges creatures into crisis, as for some the height of the day is the most dangerous time.
