Many food enthusiasts with sophisticated palates consider sturgeon eggs a delicacy, and caviar is held in high esteem by gourmets throughout the world. This documentary leads viewers through the history, harvesting, and preparation of these "pearls of the sea" -- from their natural origins in the Caspian Sea to their ultimate end in fine Parisian restaurants and other elegant tables. A look is also taken at communities whose people make a living by maintaining the age-old industry of caviar production. Other topics for discussion are the "mystical" properties of caviar, its varied uses, and the ways of serving it that are most approved.
