Genes and the information contained in them enable researchers in modern biobanks to travel on a journey of time and at the same time through dreams of the future. With data from plants, stem cells from animals and even drops of human blood, they can reconstruct the order of nature and work to revive extinct animal species aswell as getting rid of world hunger or fatal diseases. The film accompanies an expedition that compiles one of the largest and oldest archives of life and also the most modern biobanks and explains the importance of the genes.
