Few have seen what is surely one of the world’s great acts of predation: a wedge-tailed eagle catching a kangaroo. No one has ever filmed it. This is the story of Simon Cherriman on his quest to shoot just such a shot. Since his childhood Simon has been climbing trees, finding bird's nests, and going bush to observe wildlife. “A Wedged Tale“ follows him as he chases eagles across Western Australia, meeting a variety of wild animals along the way. It recounts his adventures as he pursues the elusive wedgie predation shot, but its focus is on his enjoyment of all the life around him, and especially his passion for Australia’s most powerful predator.

A young dreadlocked Australian tells us about his passion for eagles and climbing the trees where they nest. A refreshing film about his passion for nature and its creatures.
