Along the way we witness wondrous things: the birth of light and color, the identity crises of creatures that move from sea to land, the inner lives of mollusks, and more. We recognize fundamentally human experiences in these whimsical, passionate tales: obsession, neurosis, love and transformation, played out against an exquisite cosmic backdrop.
