Three years in the making, The Human Body reveals the incredible story of life. This film reveals the human body in a way never seen before–telling the incredible story of a single day in the lifetime of the you and me.
Throughout the film a family is followed from dawn to dusk as they go about their daily routines. But this is no ordinary story. This is the tale of what takes place beneath the skin–a tale that allows us to see the extraordinary accomplishments of our everyday lives.
From morning to night we live through many miracles–from the moment we first open our eyes–burning cells from the surface of our retinas and giving us, each morning, a fresh set of sensors with which to view the day–to the last rumblings of our evening meal late at night as it is turned into the raw materials with which we will face tomorrow.
In astonishing detail, we explore the daily biological processes that go on without our control and often without our noticing.
