300 000 years ago, a new species of man appears. He is to be our most direct ancestor. He sets out to explore the land and seas. He adapts to every climate, finds ways to survive, tames of surrounding forces, pushing himself to the limit. He invents art, hunting, agriculture, livestock farming, writing even medicine. His imagination transports him to the world of invisible. What is his true story, how exactly did he conquered the planet, how did he lay the foundation of our existence?
