The movie features a surreal fantasy story about mankind, its past, present and destiny - it's about space and time travels, the earth, the animals, our relationship with the environment, history, philosophy, religion, science and science fiction, love, birth and death

Various narrative levels represents the human history from different angles, perspectives and times.
There's no main character here, mankind itself speaks through the voices of Woody Allen and Diane Keaton, Peter Sinfield, James Burke, David Attenborough, Carl Sagan, Severn Cullis Suzuki and others

This movie is a mush up of more than 100 hundred different sources, creating a musical composition of paintings pictures movies songs documentaries and samples

Music ranges from classical to ambient and trip-hop

This is an open to collaboration and always evolving project - we'd love to hear your voice, comments, suggestions and whatever :-)
