The film is an experiment built around an elegant idea: what happens if you take several scientists from different, very distant fields of science, and send them one by one to visit each other as interns, guests and interviewers at the same time? An astrobiologist draws the classification of species of living creatures on the blackboard, and the neuropsychologist suddenly screams: "You just drew a brain!" Here an astrophysicist is plunging into a bathyscaphe for five kilometers to collect samples of microorganisms from the ocean floor and compares it to the flight into the space, which she has always dreamed of. The most interesting thing here is the opportunity to have a look at scientific life and to do it through the eyes of those who really know what is worth paying attention to.
