Documentarian Tiffany Shlain constructs a chronological tour of Western modernization through the work of her late father, Leonard Shlain, a surgeon and the best-selling author of "Art and Physics" and "The Alphabet Versus the Goddess." Animation is mixed with archival footage to explore the visible and invisible connections linking major issues of our time - the environment, consumption, population growth, technology, human rights and the global economy - while Shlain searches for her place in the world during a transformative time in her life.
