It is widely accepted that the East African area gave birth to the human race. Many scientists believe that one woman, who lived 150,000 years ago, is the genetic Eve from whom we all descend. If this is true, why are humans found just about everywhere? Why do our appearances differ? Utilizing the latest genetic and anthropological research, cutting-edge computer graphics and stunning theatrical recreations, Discovery Channel answers these and many other questions revealing the story behind the incredible and most important journey mankind will ever make. For the first time genetic tracking gives us a root map of our journey and with it we can follow our families of Eve as they travel through an empty world, overcome hardships, separate and go their different ways to discover new lands. It tells for the first time who we are and where we come from, the most profound questions that have troubled mankind since we first raised our heads and looked at the stars.
