Narrated by Kevin Bacon, this documentary visits one of the most diverse corners of the world, Queens in New York, to demonstrate how humans share common ancestors who embarked on very different journeys. Geneticist Spencer Wells uses more than 200 New Yorkers in his research and hopes to prove they are connected much more closely than they had imagined.
