Plot Summary
This animated documentary charts the life of painter and biologist Ernst Haeckel, who, in the 19th century, makes a number of fascinating discoveries about what lurks below the sea. Haeckel uncovers thousands of distinct underwater species, and depicts his scientific findings in his spectacular art. He simultaneously inspires the imagination of his followers and advances the cause of science. The creatures he paints are, to many people, glorious proof of a supreme being.
