In this thought-provoking documentary we bring together the most recent and groundbreaking scientific research relating to slowing down or reversing the effects of aging and increasing our life span.
This film explores the work of the most cutting-edge scientists in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology and cognitive science that, in an age of exponential technological advances, has the potential to revolutionize our lives.
In the four corners of the planet, at the heart of great universities, at private foundations, gathered in congress, leaning above their microscopes or debating with their colleagues, scientists will reveal to us their most daring hypotheses on the possibility to reverse the effects of ageing one day.
