Venturing deep into the Amazonian jungle in the mid-19th century, naturalist Henry Bates discovered thousands of previously unknown species (mostly insects). He was fascinated by their unique disguises—some looked like leaves, bark, rocks, and even a snake! One day Bates comes across a very unusual butterfly that seems to have no natural predators, and his find turns out to be more important than he could have imagined. In fact, it turns out to be key in the development of Darwin’s theory of evolution. Based on the remarkable true story of Henry Bates, this docudrama will inspire young scientists and impress everyone with its magnificent views of the extraordinary world of nature.
