A sea turtle who was hatched in 1959 spends the next 50 years traveling the world while it is being changed by global warming.

Thus begins Sammy's incredible fifty-year ocean journey. Along the way he meets his best friend, a fellow turtle named Ray, and overcomes obstacles both natural and man-made while trying to fulfill his dream of travelling around the world.
