What is consciousness? Where do our thoughts come from? What are the connections between mind and matter? Even today, no one knows the answers. Human consciousness - the small inner voice that says "I", through which we apprehend the world, is one of the greatest mysteries in contemporary science.

Scientists believe that our thoughts and feelings do not spring from a disembodied mind but from the body, and specifically from one particular organ: the brain. As far as they are concerned, our every least whim and all our choices are written into the tangle of neurons in a code that has yet to be deciphered. But that still does not tell us where decisions are made. Is it possible to identify the physical seat of free will? How does our consciousness influence the workings of our brain? From the dawning of consciousness in newborn babies via dreams, states of coma and meditation, this documentary takes us on an exploration of the extraordinary enigma of consciousness.
