- While one of the Leakeys' goals is to demonstrate the complexity and truth of human evolution, they also seek to show how the qualities that we proudly call human were all born in Africa. The story that emerges in the film is exciting, emotional, contemplative, occasionally funny, and in the end, transforming. This is Africa at its most beautiful and harshest.
This new National Geographic Special, featuring music by Paul Simon and the Kenya Boys Choir, follows Leakey and his team through perhaps the most formative of all landscapes -- the place of all our pasts - in a search for the traits that make us human.
