Ever since earliest recorded history, mankind has relied on the fanciful myths and timeless legends in order to better comprehend the strange reality that surrounds them. In this documentary, filmmaker Michael Wood holds an illuminating light up to the myths of Greek, Indian, Celtic, and Biblical origins in hopes of finding a common ground between recorded history, the truth of how events in the past really unfolded, and the mythical archetypes that have served to reflect and sustain human existence since the dawn of time.
