If we are the most intellectual creature that has ever walked on the planet, how come we are destroying that planet? (Jane Goodall) Almost 25 years ago famed primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall gave up her career in order to devote her entire time and energy to the mission of saving our planet. She has taken on the responsibilities of a UN Messenger of Peace, and has been honored with countless awards.As this charismatic woman tells us about her life, she is shown among her beloved chimpanzees in Africa, as well as on her travels around the globe to spread her message that there is still hope for future generations.  This documentary offers an intimate portrait of the private person behind the world-famous icon, possibly the most fascinating woman of our time, whose scientific breakthroughs are considered to be among the most important of the past 100 years.
