Neither animal, nor plant, the blob is a giant single cell whose amazing capacities are leading pioneer scientists to the very new world of brainless intelligence.

Blending science fiction, the beauty of nature, humor and cutting-edge science, director Jacques Mitsch takes us on a trip exploring this most surprising organism, following top international experts from Europe, Japan and the US through their major discoveries, and offering a mind-blowing experience into the very roots of cognition.
