This is a film about the meaning of life, about why the human brain is the most extraordinary thing ever created Sit back and watch the exploding rockets, the eccentric animation (a Gothic church landing on a brain???), what it means to be a parent, Land Rights, the re-enactment of Archimedes and listen to the 21 original compositions of music Or look at Latin America in a way you've never seen before.
