„Mission Gombessa“ documents the successful end of a research project which lasted for 21 years and is rightly considered as one of the greatest scientific adventures of the 20th century – the chase for coelacanths. For the German Hans Fricke it is a life-task to unravel the mystery of this fish, which already existed long before the dinosaurs. This film accompanies the scientist with wonderful archive footages and modern reportage cameras and portrays the art of life of the coelacanth and its discoverer in a very different way.
