This documentary about controversial sexologist Alfred Kinsey uses archival footage interspersed with interviews with those who knew the scientist to paint a picture that shows how Kinsey's own sexual predilections may have influenced the groundbreaking work he accomplished while working at the University of Indiana. Among those interviews are family members, co-workers, and a people who actually took Kinsey's revolutionary survey.
