The history of mankind is told from the beginning. There is the story of Omi who looks like and amoeba, Fin who swims in the shallow part of the sea and longs for the sun, Tad who dreams of running, Utang who feels he is not an ape at all, although he looks like one. And finally Man, who always forgets, until the time comes when his destiny calls him to recognize his kinship with all other members of the family of humankind.
