An ambitious account of the story of human physiology in a feature-length dramatised documentary. Harnessing the magic of the most modern visual effects, we tell the story of the human body—inside and out—as it lives, grows, and dies on this predestined journey we call life.
This unique National Geographic docudrama traces the life of a man, Adam, from the Cradle to the Grave, explaining the science behind our highs and lows, the rites of passage we all go through and exploring the inner workings of our bodies and how they change through time.
The 90-year-old narrator, Adam, reflects on his life from conception through boyhood, adolescence and beyond, revealing the events that shape him.
Along the way we meet the class bully, Adam’s first love and the sergeant major preparing him and fellow recruits for Vietnam.
With the aid of stunning computer-generated visuals, we go under the skin to reveal how Adam’s body responds to major life events, and his story is told in dramatic scenes from the 1950s to the present day.
