Over the course of 60 years, Lois and Charlie O’Brien, two of the foremost entomologists and pioneers in their field, traveled to more than 65 countries and quietly amassed the world’s largest private collection of insects. Their collection is a scientific game-changer with 1.25 million specimens and more than 1,000 undiscovered species. He was the Indiana Jones of entomology and she was his Marion Ravenwood. But in the past couple of years, however, the O’Briens have grappled with increasingly debilitating health conditions.
Charlie, 85, and Lois, 91, realize that a chapter of exploration and discovery is coming to an end in their lives. But they live in a time when the beleaguered field of science needs them most. And the O'Briens know they need to continue fighting for it. So they turn to their insects for a little help. This humorous and poignant documentary short explores the nature of Love--and the love of Nature--and what it means to devote oneself completely to both.
