If you want to know more about the infinitesimally large, you need to study the infinitesimally small. That is what Laurent Soulier, a parasitologist specialized in marine mammals, believes. He probably can save entire populations of humpback whales by analyzing their lice. But firstly he needs to collect them from living cetaceans. This is a very dangerous mission. A whale weighs 40 tons. Even though they are not aggressive, these animals are unpredictable. The pressure exercised by their fluke can knock out a diver, without even touching him! Laurent will also have to figure out a way to take such tiny parasites from their skin. With the help of a local fisherman and an underwater field expert, will Laurent succeed in his quest? From his lab in France to the waters of New Caledonia, Laurent takes us on an exceptional adventure that could save the last humpbacks...
