What do an elderly topiary gardener, a retired lion tamer, a man fascinated by mole rats, and a cutting-edge robotics designer have in common? Both nothing and everything in this unconventional documentary. These four separate and highly specialized subjects are presented and interrelated in this study of humanity, raising questions about the future of mankind.
The segments on the lion tamer include scenes at the Clyde Beatty-Cole
Brothers Circus, with club swinging, club passing, and torch juggling.
