Summary, etc.:
High in the canopy of the rain forest, a sloth spends her days and nights, camouflaged from predators. She moves very little. You might not spot her because she has a secret life. Follow her as she swims and climbs, looks for food, escapes a harpy eagle, and gives birth to her son...caring for him until the day when she will leave him to live a secret life of his own.
