Storyline

The fig tree and fig wasp differ in size a billion times over, but neither could exist without the other. Their extraordinary relationship is a pinnacle of co-evolution, and the basis of a complex web of dependency that supports animals from ants to elephants. Each individual fig is a microcosm - a stage set for birth, sex and death as the tiny players battle against predators and parasites to fulfill their mission. It is one of the most amazing stories in the natural world - a tale of intrigue and drama, set against grand Africa and it's wildlife. Written by Mark Deeble

A Unique Gem
17 October 2018 | by farshidkarimiSee all my reviews

This gem of a documentary dwarfs the highest rated movies or TV series. The story of the life of the tree is mind-boggling, the lives it harbors are amazing. The relations between the tree and insects and birds is unbelievable.

I finished watching it, startled and perplexed. The Mother Nature never ceases to enchant me.

I thank all the persons who were involved in creating such a sparkling diamond of documentary. I wish people and politicians around the world had the chance to watch this masterpiece and pore over it. This might stop hate and animosity among people.

Loved it.
