This is a 2012 documentary about cross-species relationships.
It is a fascinating, heart-warming, thought-provoking and inspirational documentary.

If you've ever loved a pet, you probably already believe animals have feelings. You probably already think the old scientific view that only humans can form long-lasting emotional bonds is nonsense. So you might not learn anything new here, but it might just solidify what you already believe about animals, which is, for me, that many of them have emotional lives, and depths of feelings, just as complex as those of humans.
Watching this video is definitely good for the human heart.

Explores the concept of social bonds and friendships, both within species, but mostly between different species. The documentary mostly looks at animals raised together in zoos, sanctuaries, rehab facilities, and so on, exploring how different species of animals can form close friendships. While the program primarily dwells on mammals, it extends to other animal life. Interesting and surprising, particularly given that in other circumstances, the friendships herein would seem unlikely.
