This unhappy island which has an area of some 163 square kilometers, has created a unique community of people that developed outside the main currents of civilization.Film begins with the fact that David Attenborough finds a grotesque figure, which he bought from a man who thought of her as a simple souvenir. But Attenborough thinks otherwise, so he decides to conduct an investigation that would lead him to the true value of small, but masterfully executed piece of wood. Along the way, the famous naturalist talks about how evolved human life on a small island where there appeared men whom they worshipped, what was built giant stone heads, and what ultimately led their way of life. Today, many ecologists see the Easter island model of modern society that devours itself in the eyes of their shortsightedness and wasteful lifestyle.
